|VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.|
This sample reads the fields 'Fullname' and 'EMailAddress' from the table 'Customers' of your Access database, and it creates for every found recordset a new contact in Outlook.
In the procedure 'ConnectDB' change the values for the variables 'File' (file name of your Access database), 'Fields' (list of field names to be read), and 'Table' (name of the database table). Repeat the field names in the procedure 'AddContactsFromAccess' as shown, and assign the values to the appropriate ContactItem properties.
You also need to add a reference to a 'Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects x Library' via Tools/References. If there's more than one library of that type, choose the most current one. For an Access 2007 database (*.accdb file) or higher you need version 6.0 at least.

|OLKeeper reliably prevents users from closing their Outlook window and thus possibly missing reminders or e-mails.|
