Hi I have created some user-defined fields in Outlook 2003 which appear as column headers in the mail inbox pane. If I click on a column header I get the message "you cannot sort by this field". Is there a workaround for this and if not does anyone think it would be possible to accomplish this with code? Thanks.

No - I'm not talking about Categories, I'm talking about a custom-field. But thanks anyway. Regards, Mike

Hi, Mike.

You can sort by a user-defined field unless the user-defined field uses a formula.  Outlook does not permit sorting by fields that use formulas to calculate their value.  There isn't a workaround for this.  It's by design.
