Linking to Contact File in Exchange 2000 Public Store

P: n/a
I'm trying to create a link from Access 2003 to an Exchange 2000
Public Folder called "WMContacts" I choose File => Get External Data=>
Link Tables. I choose Exchange() and the wizard give me the Link
Exchange/Outlook Wizard. From there I choose Public Folders => All
Public Folders => WMContacts. I leave the linked table name as
"WMContacts". It then displays a nastygram with the following:

"The MAPI store "WMContacts" is known but is not available in the
current profile. This can occur if you use a profile that is designed
for working offline from a server and try to link to a folder or
address book on the server. The wizard is unable to link to it."

My goal is to link from Access to this folder. When I change a data
item in another access table, I will write a program that finds the
same record in the public folder on the exchange server and updates
the appropriate record's field based on the Access table.

I have deleted the outlook profile several times and recreated it
without any offline selections. How do I successfully make this link?

Thanks,

Patrick Park

I encountered the same problem with the identical error, even with a
profile that was not enabled for offline use. After a lot of trial and
error I was able to link the table by removing all custom views that
had been created for the folder.
