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.

I has a killer object model, examples, help file and great tech support. They even added some features I requested. This was circa 2006.  Check it out

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.
