    View actual categories in Outlook (XP Dutch)

    Good afternoon!

    At home I'm working with Vista and although some things are kind of 'lost' there are some features which I really like.
    Here at work I'm still using Office XP.
    I want to know if it's possible to have a view for the Tasks in which I can see both my actual task

    Daphne, your question is a bit unclear. Do you want to see the Category for each Task? In the Calendar Taskpad, or the full Task View, you should be able to right click the Task headers and use the Field Chooser to add the Category, then sort by Category. Post back if that doesn't help.

    Thanks for your speedy reaction!

    I'll try to be more specific.
    I want to see all my categorized tasks by active task.
    If I try something like that I get to see al my finished tasks as well.
    For instance:
    category Work:
    - task a
    - task b
    (not the already finished tasks)
    category Private:
    - task a
    -task b (and so on)...

    Is this a bit more clear?

    I hope so!

    OK, assuming you have the Category for each Task in your Task Field headers, right click on the Category Header and select Group By this Field. Is that what you are looking for?

    Edit: to prevent the completed Tasks from displaying, you will also need to Filter the View to eliminate those Tasks: View | Arrange By | Customize Current | Filter | Advanced | Field | Complete equals no | Add to List | OK | OK | Apply.

    HTH.
