Updating Outlook Contacts from Access

Updating Outlook Contacts from Access

Updating Outlook Contacts from Access


I would like Outlook to filter my email so when I get an email from one of my contacts it puts it in a seperate folder.

I understand how to do this using rules.

I would however like to be able to update my contacts from my access database.

My initial idea was to create a linked table to Outlook Contacts. Easy enough.

My intention was to then delete all records in the Outlook Table and run an Access Append query which would create the up to date contacts.

So the link has worked fine, but if i try to add a record, I get an error saying I dont have the correct permissions.

Running the Access Append query also gives the same result.

Can someone help - is there a better way to do this / how would I alter permission?

The aim for me is to click a button, deleting the current contacts and then running the Append query to create the new contacts.

Thank you for any help - Mark
