Default Tieing Access Database and Outlook Calendar

Hey nerd friends, I need some help:

At work, I use Microsoft Office 2010. I have set up customer database in Access, got a nice little form tied to it and everything, I'm quite proud of what I have figured out. (This will tell you how un-advanced I am with this, pretty please help me accordingly)

Now, what I'm trying to do: One of the lines in the customer database is there to choose a date and time to set up an appointment for an estimate. A little calendar guy pops up so I can just pick the date. What I WANT it to do is, something like, click on the "appt. date" field and it automatically goes to our Outlook calendar. Then I can click on a date and time, and the Access customer info that was just added to the database automatically populates the necessary information in the Outlook calendar... as well as puts that date and time into the Access database. This way it can be done all in one motion. Or something as similar to that as possible. Anyone have any ideas for me?
