Lots of fields are left out when you link an Outlook folder as a table in Access.  I recommend using VBA Automation code instead, because not only can you work with all the standard fields, but custom fields as well.  Here is a link to a code sample database with code to import contacts into an Access table:

It is rather old, but should work with Office 2007.  For more updated code, see my Access 2007 Bible book.
