    Multiple categories in the calendar (2007)

    We recently completed our upgrade to Outlook 2007. We use a number of categories in setting up appointments, and we often assign multiple categories to a single appointment. When there are colors associated with each category, an appointment displays with one color and then small boxes indicating the other corners. Is there any way to affect which color is the "main" color for the appointment, and which color is a small secondary box?

    Thank you,
    DeNae

    The most recently added category tends to be the one whose colour is used. But you can change the colour by selecting "All Categories..." - there's a "Color" drop-down menu on the right hand side of the dialogue box.

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Or if you wish you can click on the category that you want as the second category first, then select and check on the category that you want first.
    Thanks John
