Which version of Outlook?

Outlook 2007 introduced colored categories and I use them daily for 
color-coding events.

Prior to Outlook 2007, colored labels were your option:

Additional information:

You may want to upgrade to Office 2010. It is currently available for 
beta testing.

Text is changed using automatic formatting. It's a View setting so you need 
to look for Customize view command on the View menu.

What event does a hotkey generate?
All, I have a date field in a form that has vba code attached to the 'after update' event. Then I setup a hotkey to auto the current date in the same field.

Hello, I have a project that creates 18 CBitmapButtons. As you know CBitmapButtons cannot be created (or at least to my knowledge) from adding the componet to the form. So I decided to create 18 CBitmapButtons in my code to create the buttons. Here is the problem... I need to write an event handler for these 18 buttons, and since there isn't the convenice of the event handling that you will find when you are adding componets to the form, I cannot figure out how to manually add event handlers..
