List of Categories in Outlook 2010

Is there any way of getting a printable list of categories assigned in
Microsoft Outlook 2010?

e.g. to allow the list to be fine-tuned and or for colleagues to also
have the same categories available

TIA!

The following macro in Outlook should work to produce a list of categories 
in a Word document.
Set a reference to the Microsoft Word object library in the vba editor 
(Tools > References).
Although aimed at Word the principles shown at 
http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm apply to Outlook also should you 
not know what to do with macro listings.

Sub MyCategories()
Dim oCat As Category
Dim sList As String
Dim wdApp As Word.Application
Dim wdDoc As Word.Document
Dim bStarted As Boolean
sList = ""
For Each oCat In Session.Categories
    sList = oCat & vbCr & sList
Next oCat
On Error Resume Next
Set wdApp = GetObject(, "Word.Application")
If Err Then
    Set wdApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    bStarted = True
End If
Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add
wdApp.Visible = True
wdApp.Activate
wdDoc.Range = sList
Set wdDoc = Nothing
Set wdApp = Nothing
Set oCat = Nothing
End Sub

This is perfect... thanks.
Please note:  In Outlook 2010 I had to set
     [Developer][Macro Security][Macro Settings]=3DNotification for all
macros.
Then I had to stop and restart Outlook... and allow macros from the
security warning dialog that appeared when I restarted Outlook.
Also, as Graham noted, make sure you do the following from the VB for
Apps editor:
[Tools][References][Microsoft Word 14.0 Object Library] =3D checked

Thanks

Better to "nest" or use multi-level list?
I'm in the process of creating/defining a style(s) for a list that will be numbered in "level 1" and have indented bullets in "level 2." For such a list is it better to define a multi-level list style and linked paragraph styles? Or use one's already defined numbered list and use one of the Word's pre-defined bullet lists when needed for the second level? As part of this question, is is preferable not to have a style "nested" within another style or doesn't it matter? Thank you. -- Norm Hi Norm: I'm not sure why yo...

Smart List export to Excel #2
Hi, We are using Dynamics 9.0 and Office 2003. When we try to do a Smart List export to Excel, we keep getting an "Exception_Class_Object_Exception" that references varying object errors, such as 'Cells' or 'Value'; the object errors will change each time we try an export. As a workaround, I've found that closing Excel before doing the export allows the export to complete successfully. However, that solution isn't acceptable, as our Dynamics users would like to be able to work in Excel, doing other tasks, while the export is processing. Does anyone...
