I know a lot about DAO and have never heard (read) of doing what you asked in the question.



DBX files - I guessed it was a file generated by outlook express, the internal format/structure of which I do not know about.  AFAIK outlook express does not provide an automation (COM) interface so what you require is likely to be quite difficult unless there are third party tools available, or you study the DBX file structure and write the code yourself.
