Outlook 2002, Display Category and Subject for appointment in Calendar...

Dear All,

I am using Outlook 2002, and use Categories to link tasks against different projects. It would be extremely useful to be able to see the category as well as the task name for the appointment. At the moment I can only get the Name and location. Otherwise I have to cut/paste this in from the Task List which seems very wrong.

Any ideas how I can achieve this.

Also I will need to run some code - SQL, VBA ...?? to extract this task data for each category for billing purposes. Any pointers here please. I have recently moved from another product which was based on Access so no problem here although deficient in other areas hence the move to Outlook.

Many thanks,

Sam

Slink9,

Thanks,

#1 -but that is not quite what I wanted. OK, yes 'By category gives a list of appointments by category, but what I need is the day view with each appointment with
Category and Appointment Name. At the moment you only get Appointment name.

#2 - Interesting, will have to try this. However is there a way of getting task data with categories into Access?

Thanks,

Sam

Both.  I have a Palm m105 and IPAQ 3650.  I have also written software for the Palm but have not done a whole lot with it.

#1  View-Current View-Customize
#2  I will see if Stefri will jump in on this.

Slink9,

#1 Tried this, but could not find 'Categories' under 'Fields' on  'View Summary' dialog - just lots of date/time type fields. Still puzzled. More details please

#2 I have just bought the H4150, but discovered that HP is not offering a Mobile 2003 SE upgrade. No doubt you have an opinion on this....

Thanks,

Sam

Thanks, but still no good. However I have noticed that when I clicked on 'Fields' the 'Date/Time Fields' dialog pops up. So that may be why I am getting just date and time field.....!!! So I do I get the other fields e,g Categories etc....

Ever puzzled,

Sam

Sorry, I just noticed that you can get the Categories field only in the table views and not in the Day/Week/Month views.  Need to think about this.

As far as the portables go, I can only afford the old stuff.  When I sell tons of copies of my book maybe I will be able to afford better.

I have decided to close this one. Slightly inconclusive, but I appreciate the effort hence the points.

Thanks,
