Different Categories in Outlook 2016 and Outlook Contact Folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    I write codes using VBA. 

    I use Outlook 2016 to access an Exchange contact folder.  The list of categories (customized, e.g. holiday, customer, partners, ...) in this folder is different from the list of categories accessible from Outlook 2016 client (Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, Yellow only).  How can I import the customized categories into this the Outlook <g class="gr_ gr_542 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Punctuation multiReplace" data-gr-id="542" id="542">Client.</g>

  • Hello Albert,

    Your choices are:

    1. Build the master categories list by migrating categories if you copy the pst-file from an old computer running an older version of Outlook to the new one , see .

    2. Export and import categories. Read more about that in the Outlook Categories and Color Categories article.
