mapping fields in MS outlook...
Posted on 2006-05-21
I am using Ms outlook 2003. I am trying to import an old address book from an older vendor’s program. I temporarily parked that address book in a MS access 2003 data base, so I could clean it up, and now I am ready to import it into Ms out look.
However, I am not familiar with how to accomplish what I want. Firstly, the fields in the Ms access DB have names that do not co-incide with ms outlook. And I would like to retain my old field names. Which means I will have to add them to those of my contacts in outlook.
Secondly, I would like these fields to be displayed, when I view the properties of my contacts in Ms Outlook. So there for I must customize the view displayed in the properties of contact in out look.
Also, the phone numbers are show in access as text. Will out look accept this format of telephone numbers…there is no mask on them.
Any help appreciated.
