Hello -

I am using Microsoft Outlook 2003 and would like to use it as a "front-end"
to schedule bookings of our educational outreach programs. I already have a
Microsoft Access database set up to enter the booking and invoice
information, do reports, invoicing and tracking.

I am currently using a separate calendar that is not attached to the
database, so we currently have to update two separate files each time we make
a booking.

If we can connect Outlook to Access, it would make an elegant solution.

YOu might want to look at the tools like SQLView that can expose a database table as an Outlook folder; see http://www.outlookcode.com/d/database.htm#tables
