User-defined Outlook fields in Access

Is there a way to have Access display user-created fields from Outlook?

I have added user-defined fields to Outlook 2007 to capture addtional
contact information. I have also created an Access 2007 db linked to my
contacts within Outlook (via Access's External Data > Outlook Folder
function) to allow me to do some additional processing based on my contacts.
When I review the contacts table within Access I only see those Outlook
fields created by Microsoft (and not the additonal fields I created). Is
there a way to display the additional columns within my Access table?

Thanks in advance!

Also, I'd like to add Outlook's three email fields (just noticed they weren't
included in the contact info displayed in Access). Any tips on how to
include these too?

TIA

Sorry, looks like I shouldn't have posted my first question so quickly as
I've run into another hurdle. Does Outlook assign a key field to the contact
records? Is it possible to add that to the field list in Access? Wondering
how I'm going to key the tables I'm adding in Access to the Outlook list...

TIA (again!)
