    Sort Task List (Outlook 97 (8.04.5619))

    Is there a way to sort the tasks within a Task category without assigning dates? Or even to sort the Task categories themselves? My Tasks are recurring (most are weekly or monthly, but some daily). I've tried placing a number in front of the Task to put them in the order of my own choosing but that does seem to work. Generally, once I've created a Task for myself, I do not modify it except to add notes or hyperlinks to specific files. I'd like to avoid the use of dates (a category itself can remind me that the task is Daily, Weekly, Monthly etc.)
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks John. Thats power enough to fix what I need. From the Task screen I click on the column header "Subject" then right-click, and a menu appears with View Summary, from which I can choose my sort method.

    I'm not much of a power user for Tasks, but have you tried the Categories View (or other Views which may work for you) under View, Current View, and then sort by clicking on the Task Field Titles? The default sort order is task Due Date, see the little arrow in the "Due Date" Title, but you can sort by all the other fields by clicking on the Field Title, except Category in Category View, and there may be other restrictions I haven't found. Poke around and see what is available. HTH.

    Hey, I never tried right-clicking the Field Title, that provides a useful menu, thanks for the Tip! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
