Good Call Log Concept?

I need to have a call log of all phone calls, and I want to link both Outlook

Contacts and Calendar events, but I don't need it for every call record. I'm

not sure which way to go - create database and forms in Access and link, or

work within Outlook. Can a combination of task and calendar items work?

Thanks!

When you post any programming questions you generally need to post the

Outlook version.

Take a look at journal items. They have a type for phone calls and a timer

to time events and activities. You can link to contacts in the Contacts box

(Links collection) and you can add an item such as an appointment to a

journal item.

Yes, thanks - we use 2003, 2007 versions.

Journal may be a good fit - thanks!

Another question for you on this subject -

How would I best design a form combining Journal, Calendar, and Contact

properties? I think this would answer my needs, if there is an option to add

new calendar and contact info.

Thanks.

The answer is you don't.

Each type is a different form and MessageClass based on a different MAPI

type: IPM.Note (mail), IPM.Contact, IPM.Appointment, etc. Each type can only

host related properties. So if you expect to add appointment properties to a

journal or contact item forget it.

You can add text fields to a form where the data isn't native, but other

types of fields may or may not work.

I would do 2 things. First, review the forms information at

www.outlookcode.com to get the basics of form design and review the forms

material in Sue's book. Second. post forms design questions in the

appropriate group, in this case microsoft.public.outlook.program_forms.
