what basically i a trying to do is display my Outlook Contacts in Address book into my website.
But i am not sure is it possible or not (Duh...)
If anyone know how we can do it, please guide me in right direction...

Since Outlook is a client application, you need to use client side programming to get the data.

Have a look at this article to get going (Instead of Appointments, try for contacts): Import and Export Outlook Appointments (using JavaScript)[^]

Another article that will help: Retrieving Outlook Contact Lists using Javascript[^]

From client side, you can use AJAX to talk to server, sql server and use ADO.NET.

I think there is confusion, above example is window application i want something that i can publish on my web server. the picture is i want to address book on my intranet website so that each employee see contacts

Hmmm... Winforms example it is.
Maybe I haven't understood your question, but why don't you export your address book as csv file, upload it to your website and import it in Sql Server with OleDb?

i dont want to manually maintain it problem is contacts are changed very frequently ... some got hire some got fired... so address book contact must be up to date 24x7...
