Is it possible to link an Exchange public folder or Address Book to an external Database and be able to update or edit that database and have the changes reflected in the Public Folder or Addressbook?

Thanks,

The Exchange address book is basically a representation of your Active Directory.
I would not advise modifying anything in this public folder through another method then the AD.

You can manipulate AD data by using ADSI or ADO. (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/adsi/adsi/using_adsi.asp for more info)
As to manipulating the content of a public folder, I'd suggest you look in to CDO.
