    Hi,

    I would like to have on one of my form a button, that when clicking on
    it, the Oulook "Select Item" window opens 'using a code of course, in
    order to select a specific outlook message.
    Then either the message is saved as OFT file on the hard-drive at the
    server (where the DB is stored) or the message is stored within the
    database as an object.

    Does any one have an idea how to do it?

    Thanks,

    Gersonia.

    Hi Gersonia,

    This is much more complex than you may think - is Outlook set up with a pst?
    Ost? Exchange? Where will the files go? To a server share? Local drive? This
    is not something I've played with, but I imagine it probably can be done.
    Look into the Outlook Object Library functions, and you might find something
    at slipstick.com - Sue Mosher has tons of stuff there on Outlook that might
    help.

    To give you an idea of what you're up against, take a look at the first half
    of this page, setting tasks in Outlook to work with Access:
    http://www.vb123.com/toolshed/05_docs/outlooktasks.htm

    If you do find a solution I'd love to learn it as well!

    Good luck,
