Configuration - Database

If the folder is linked to a database table/view the ODBC data source and table/View names are shown behind the folder.


To add a table, first select a folder (Only Contacts Folders for Microsoft Outlook 2000), then click on the ‘Assign table’ button.


To remove a table, first select a folder which has a table connected to it, click on the ‘Remove table’ button to remove the link between the Outlook folder and the database table.

When an Outlook folder is already linked to a database table the link can be reconfigured by clicking on the ‘Assign table’ button.

Use the ‘Copy profile to…’ button to copy configuration of a selected folder to other folders of the same type.
