Access 2013 & Outlkook - Edit a Contact

I have an access application that uses outlook contact data and I would like to be able to "double click" on my access contact name to open the related access vcard

I have imported the contact entryID

Help opening the vcard and filtering for the correct contact would be appreciated.

"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.

Do you mean open the related Outlook Contact when you say vcard?

If you really mean vCard does that mean you have all the Outlook Contact data exported to vCard files?


How to use the vCard feature in Outlook ( https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/290840 )

How to create a vCard
Use the following steps to create a vCard:

    In a Contact folder, click to select the contact for which you want a vCard.
    On the File menu, click Save As.
    In the Save file as type box, click to select VCARD Files (*.vcf).
    In the Save In box, select the folder where you want to save the vCard file, and then click Save.

This creates a vCard file with the same name as that of the Contact.

FWIW: I find that using the correct terminology for Outlook help when you search the web or help files.

If yu want to view a Contact record in Outlook then it should be possible because my  Voip desktop app can open my Outlook Contact by matching the caller ID phone number.

I have never tried to do this since I keep all my contact data in Access,  I an really curious to see if this is possible.  I will do what I can to get you an answer.

Thanks for helping clarify - view a Contact record in Outlook by opening the Outlook Contact by matching the caller the entryid (unique number for each contact)

I thought that that was what you wanted.

My first that is that you would use Outlook Automation. I am trying to create an example now.
