    sorting task list by categories (Outlook 2000 SR-1)

    Is it possible to force Outlook to sort the task list by Category field? On Clicking on the Category Header Outlook responds with message " You can not sort by this list"

    Many Thanks in advance.

    Yes - sorta. You can't really sort by category because a task may belong to multiple categories. But you can fake it with grouping. Go to "View | Current View | Customize Current View | Group By... ". Then select "Categories" under "Group items by", select ascending/descending to suit, and check the "Show field in view" box. "OK" back to your view, now "sorted" by categories (but you'll have the same task appear multiple times if it is in more than one category, once under each category it belongs to).
