Hi,

I am still in the conceptual stages of building an equipment request database and I have a quick question. Is it possible to link an equipment request form to the database via email. This would allow people to email completed forms to me to ensure that information is accurately and cut out the middle man in the data entry process.

If this is possible, can you please tell me the steps I would take to do this?


Thank you in advance... :wink:

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Even if you are not sure of the actual steps right now...it would be great to know if this is possible using Access 2003.

Thanks

Yes it is possible. I did some Outlook and Access intergration 8 or 9 years ago. It worked very nice, but there is no way this old brain will ever remember HOW it was done. Have you searched for "Access and Outlook"?
