    Copying Items in Outlook (Outlook 2000 SR-1)

    Can anyone help here. A user on my network want to export or copy Journal Items and or Contact items over to a spreadsheet and then use the spreadsheet to create a report. However, I have noticed, when copying an item or exporting it to Excel, the Notes field entries gets truncated and not all the notes entries are copied over. Is this a limitation of Outlook? If not, then is there a way of ensuring all the items get copied over?
    Thanks a lot

    It's a limitation of the export process, especially if you are using delimited files as the export target. But I've seen it when selecting other types too. We've standardized on using Access and linking tables into the Outlook folders. The only problem with this is that you see some data in its raw format rather than a Yes/No or checkbox for example.

    How would you then link the Access database to say a Public Folder in Outlook? Can it be done easily?
    Thanks

    In that case you use the file type Exchange(). You can then browse to the public folder you want to use.
