How create a macro that does a specific category search in Outlook 2010?

Hi,

I've a public folder and a personal contact folder with lots of contacts and all of them are associated with categories. I'm looking a way to perform a search inside this folder without having to enter each time in the search options category:="Business" AND category:="Europe" AND NOT category:="blablabla"

Any ideas if I can put all of this requests into a macro? I'll have 3-4 specific ones to create. The computer is running XP SP3 with Outlook 2010 SP1.

Thanks!

Have you tried creating custom views to do this?  You can apply filter criteria to a custom view...

Hi, David_Pazos.

Will you always be searching for the same categories?  If not, then even with a macro you're going to have to enter the names of the categories you want to search on.
