Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Linking to data in an Outlook database, part of Office 365: Access Essential Training.
- You may not have realized it but…the Microsoft Office Suite contains another…great database program.…Outlook maintains tables in its own…databases of all your emails, contacts,…tasks, and calendar events.…We can dig into that database from Access in order…to easily bring in information from Outlook.…In order to get to your Outlook database, you're going…to go up here to the External Data tab and in the Import…and Link section, you're going to click the More button…here and then at the very bottom you'll find…a link to the Outlook folder.…When I click that, the Get External Data…Outlook Folder Wizard starts up.…
It asks us how we want to bring the data in here to Access.…We can either import the source data into brand new tables…in the current database, we can append a copy…of some records into an existing table, if we have one,…or we can create a link to the data source by creating…a linked table if we make changes to our Outlook folder.…For instance, we add a new contact or add a new contact…or add a task to our calendar, then we'll be able to see…
