    I was going to suggest the example from databasedev or outlooktask automation but daishani beat me to it. However, it seems that you have not start creating the main database.

    Question is:

    Do you want to create it yourself or are you looking for a ready made. The expert here can help you make one but we answer specific questions one at a time. No work on an entire project in one question. If you want an expert to work with you on a project check their profile to see if they are available for hire.
