I want to know if it is possible to feed data from a MS Outlook form into a MS Access table.  If possible how can I do that?

Greetings, fcoit.

Sure it's possible.  The question is how do you want to do it?  Are you talking about code in a custom form, an external routine that reads the form later, or something else?

Ok.  What type of form are we talking about: mail, task, appointment, etc.?  Are the items in one od the default folders (i.e. Inbox, Contacts, Tasks, etc.), or in a folder you've created?
