Outlook 2011 Color Catagories -- Developement RRS feed

  • Question

  • Outlook 2011 mac:

    I know that the information for outlook is stored on the users account. Well I have been trying to read the "Categories" files that are stored at the below location in mac folders:

    User>>Documents>>Microsoft User Data>>Office 2011 Identities>>Main Identity>>Data Records>>Categories

    I haven't been able to find anything that could read this file.

    When I open it up in a text editor, it will display the category name, but also has a lot of random characters.

    I don't know what type of encoding (Unicode etc) is used to store this data, I am trying to read this data. Does anyone have any ideas how to do this?

    Here is an example of how a text editor display it (the word: "Holiday" is the categorie name, but I need to be able to understand the other stuff too):
