    Is there a way to easily link Outlook Contacts into an Access database?

    Yes, this can be done from within Access. From the online help:
    <hr>You can use the Exchange/Outlook Wizard to link to your Microsoft Outlook Contacts folder and then create form letters and mailing labels by merging the data using the Microsoft Word Mail Merge Wizard. You must have Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, or Microsoft Exchange installed on your computer to run the Exchange/Outlook Wizard.
    1. <LI>Open a database, or switch to the Database window for the open database.
      <LI>Do one of the following:
      <UL><LI>To import data, on the File menu, point to Get External Data, and then click Import.
      <LI>To link data, on the File menu, point to Get External Data, and then click Link Tables.
    <LI>In the Import (or Link) dialog box, in the Files of type box, select either Outlook() or Exchange().
    <LI>Follow the directions in the Exchange/Outlook Wizard dialog boxes. [/list]<hr>
    I typed Outlook into the Answer Wizard, then selected "Import or link data and objects" to get this.
