We build machines, and would like to use Outlook as a top level database. It

works nicely. We'd like to drop pdfs of drawings and docs into the card.

1. Can I use multiple "Notes" fields?

2. Is there a size limitation for the outlook contact card?

3. Can I put multiple hyperlinks on the card?

Thanks

1. No

2. Not really, but the larger things are the slower

3. Yes

This really isn't a good idea.

Outlook is a personal information manager, not a database.

It lacks many of the fault tolerant features of a good database, backup is

so-so, and unless you use Exchange then the database (PST file) cannot be

accessed by more than one user at a time. Plus PST's are not supported for

storage on network shares.

You are far better off using a database application for this than Outlook.
