    Linking to Outlook Contacts (2003)

    I can use File/Get External Data/ Link to create a table that is linked to Outlook Contacts. I would like to continue to link to this data, but via my own contacts table that has different field names and an (autonumber) primary key. Is this possible? Thanks, Andy.

    No, when you link to a table, the structure is determined by the source. You can create a query based on the linked table that displays different field names.

    I suppose I could create a couple of queries to append/ update the information in my contacts table, but this might prove a bit messy. I don't need to pursue this urgently at the moment though. Thanks, Andy.
