In summary: the link process works and the record count is correct but you cannot see any text. When exported to Excel the first row under the headers appears in Chinese characters the rest blank - should be 426 rows of English. See attached screen prints and below for more detail..
When I try to import the data instead I get an error message - see below for details.
I hope someone can help!
I open Access (blank database), go to External Data tab, select more, select Outlook Folder, select link and select OK.
Expand the address books option
Select Outloook Address book
The table link is created but the table iappears to be empty. However the correct number of records are there - just all the fields look blank.
When I export the table to excel I get of row of chinese characters under the filed headings - the rest is blank!
When I try to import the data instead I get the message"Method 'Value' of object 'Field2' failed. Imoved the pst file from Outlook 2003 in mid 2007 - this took 2 user defined fields I had created - with names - but just called them field 1 and field 2 in 2007. So I thought the error might be to do with these. I deleted them ans restarted Outlook but hte error persists.
