    Calender categories (OL 2K)

    I would like to be able to customise the calendar view in outlook. What I want is to add my categories I've assigned to the message. I have several 'job-codes' to describe the type of work I'm doing and several 'project-codes'. I have these as categories. Each week when I have to fill my time sheets in (with what work I was doing for what project) I'd like to be able to print off the calendar and add everything up from there.
    Unfortunately I can't find a way to customise the view (yes, I've tried Customize Current View..., but it doesn't give me enough freedom to do this, categories are not listed in the fields I can add and the only other settings are font related). I've tried Help but <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>...
    I know the latest WOW-MM had some info about organising Outlook with colours, but it seems the guidlines were for OL2K2 (XP) and not OL2K <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> .
    Any suggestions??
    TIA

    Try changing the view to a list view like all appointments - this will give you more flexibility. (change views from the view menu, current view)

    OK. I can see the categories if I switch to active appointments, but that only shows me future appointments (up to and including boxing day) but not past time blocks. If I try and view it in by ctegories, I drown in 2 yrs of appointments, meetings, birthdays, etc.
    I want to be able to print the past week or so, and I would like to print it in 5 day working week style. With the categories for the timeblocks.

    Thanks anyway.

    PS Aah! <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> I have just found a work - no, sorry - a fudge-around. I can export the calendar with the relevant fields (inc. categories) as a csv. Now if I can write a script to do the same, every Monday morning, fill in my timesheet and e-mail to finance dept. and never have to worry again, that would be cool.....

    You can filter by categories from a day, week, month view - does that help?
