    Outlook custom Form connection to a database (2000)

    I have created a custom form in Outlook 2000 which will greatly increase the efficiency of information sent to my group. I would like to take this to the next level by tying the form's fields to a database. I do not want to use an ASP page because the submitted forms will include attachments that ASP can't handle.

    Is there a way to have the e-mail sent to my inbox and the various fields built in to the form update a database simultaneously? My research has not given me much help.

    That can be done. The best way to get started, other than a book, might be to grab some knowledgebase articles off of support.microsoft.com. Some articles that might be handy: 209948,208232, 161088. These have links to other articles too. I don't recall any code samples for this on slipstick.com, but there might be.
