"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on the version of Access you are using.

The tags on your question say Access 2003.  This feature was available in Access 2003.  You could customize toolbars to get it.  Instructions here:

I don't think it is available in later versions.

No Auto Dialer that I am aware of.  You s/b able to tap into the Windows XP AutoDialer ... but not that simpler per se.  The KAED app is very cool and a LOAD of functionality.

Well ... it's the best I've seen.  Again, I built an entire Auto Dialer app using that OCX.  These guys are in Brazil ... and were VERY helpful.  There may be others ... of course.
