She walks through an example of how to use the expression to run the client macro SaveAsOutlookContact from a Web form.

    Good video, but next time I suggest moving a little slower and pausing on the important screens so that it is easier to see what is going on.


    Keep up the great work!

    The zip code field in the contacts sample you use does not appear to have the correct property set on it to allow that field to import.  This is evident in your video as well.  Perhaps you can tell the right people to fix that sample before final version comes out.  It can be manualy fixed using an old module posted on the access team blog.
