In my contacts folder, some were assigned category HC. A while back I made a subfolder and copied in just those contacts with category = HC. Recently, all category assignments in my main folder were wiped out (I think that's because of synching problems with my Palm and my laptop, but that's a different problem.) So I thought a simple way to restore the categories (at least the HC one) would be to copy the contacts from the subfolder back into the main folder. When I do that, the copying seems to work (a few name changes get updated) but the category assignment doesn't come over to the main folder. Is this a known problem with Outlook 2K, or should I be doing something different?
