How does AddContactFromOutlook command in Access map fields?

I am using the Sales Pipleline database template that comes with Access 2007/2010 and there seems to be an error in the Save Contact to Outlook and Add Contact from Outlook commands.

All that the command button does is fire a macro that runs AddContactFromOutlook, (or SaveAsOutlookContact) however the street address does not come over during the import. Same with a save, the street address isn't saved.

I looked at the Contacts database template that uses the same command buttons, and it works!  I can not figure out what the difference is between the two samples.

I even tried importing the Contacts table into the Sales Pipeline, and used it to replace the Customers table.  This fixed the problem, but the Employees table suffers from the same error.

I searched EE, and Googled the internet, but have not been able to find anything that tells me how these command work.

Attached are blank examples of both templates.

Thanks for the help Jeff ...

What I ended up doing is importing the table from the version that worked to replace the two in the version that didn't - which solved the problem.

Still don't know why ...
