    Hi,

    Is it possible to enter a name, date and start time for
    an appointment in an Access database and send those three
    fields to Outlook automatically (like a control button)
    to set up an appointment?

    I would be eternally grateful to anyone who could help me
    do this. The database part is working great, but my
    client wants it to flow automatically into his Outlook.
    He hates typing, so hates retyping more.

  2. Yes, it's possible using Outlook automation -- in other words, writing VBA
    code. If you're new to Outlook VBA macros, these web pages should help you
    get started:
