Hi, GRayL.

That's not possible.  Both Link and Import use a fixed list of fields.  There's no provision for including user-defined fields.  Writing a script is the only way to get at those.

You can 'tailor' that list by File - Import Export - Link - copy to file - Access - pick Contacts, name the file to copy to, then Map Custom Fields.  However, the user-defined fields are now where to be found in any of the collections on the left side.  I don't know if that is by design/oversight - I'm going to the Microsoft Outlook site and have a look there.
