search for category in Outlook contact with multiple categories



  • 1. VB.NET File watcher/transfers question ?
    Hello Im sure this is possible im just not sure about the best way to approach it so any help or comments is greatly appreciated I have a windows service program that runs at startup and remains always running. This service interacts with the user and a database server and supports remote commands with a management package that our company uses. At present we are running an app on a server that we are trying to move the local machines which is easy enough. This particular app interfaces with an sql server but has components that are added or removed on a weekly basis or sometimes daily (By components i mean addin files that are loaded at the startup of the program and at predefined program refresh times). The issue we have now we are running the program locally is that i dont know what the best way is to go about transferring the initial files from a server based UNC path and then monitoring these files to see if they change and transfer them either at a predefined interval or automatically after they are created or modified and how to remove them when they are deleted. The amount of data for any given period is between 1MB and 10MB at the moment and shouldnt grow to much. So my question is how would you approach this ? Any help is greatly appreciated

  • 3. Update table SQL Express & VS 2005
    OK, I hate myself for asking this, it's the worst question I have ever asked but it's worse not to ask: How do I update a datatable in vs 2005? I mean, I am using a typed dataset, a datagridview control and SQL express. I tried this code on a separate button to commit changes to the database: Private Sub cmdOK_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdOK.Click If Not Me.DataSet.DataTable.GetChanges Is Nothing Then Me.DataTableTableAdapter.Update(Me.DataSet.DataTable.GetChanges) End If End Sub It seems to work fine, no exception is thrown, the update method returns 1, the datagridview shows just the right modified data, and if I clear the dataset and fill it again with the tableadapter it keeps the same data. But it's not working, when I open this SQL Express datatable from the visual studio server explorer it has the original unedited data and I can't change that. I have event tried to run a simple sqlcommand with an insert query, but I get the same results. Am I doing anything wrong? Maybe I must configure something on SQL Express or in VS? Call some method of the dataset, the tableadapter, the bindingsource or the datagridview before changes can be sent to the database? Just to add some more info, I tried to update, insert and delete data from the Server Explorer and it works fine.

1.Searching on Multiple categories in contacts

Can anyone tell me how to search for multiple categories in Outlook 2007.

Previously all I had to do was enter the category into the find field, 
separating them with a comma if I wanted to widen the search!


2.Search For One Category In A Field That Has Multiple Categories

Let's say I have a contact in Outlook in 3 different categories.  New
York, Chicago, LA

I want to search for the category Chicago which is in the middle of New
York and LA.

How do I search just categories "containing" Chicago.


3.Category Search Folder for more than one category AND not OR

I have a lot of emails that have been given multiple categories - company 
name, project title, project location for example.

I want to be able to pull together mail items that are categorised as being 
from a particular company, related to a particular project.

I've tried using a custom search folder but when I do that, it returns all 
emails containing either of the selected categories. I want a search that 
only returns results containing both those categories.

Is this possible?

4.Multiple Category Problem - Several Categories Treated as One

I have seen several references to this problem in the archives.  The
problem occurs where a contact has been assigned to more than one
category.  Typically, in the category window on the contact's
individual page, each category will be separated by a comma and a
space.  When the problem occurs, there is only the comma separting
categories, no space.  The effect of this is that when one does a view
of one's contacts by category, you don't get all of one category in a
single list.  For example you might get a list for Accountants, another
for Accountants,Manufacturing, another for Accountants,Service Industry
and so on.  If you are looking up Accountants, you have to go to many
individual lists to see them all.

I think Judy Gleeson MVP came closest to the cause on a Sept/06 post
when she said, "I have narrowed the problem down to Blackberry's.  This
issue only appears on PC's where Outlook is synced with a blackberry.
During the sync a flag is thrown about categories. All the users didn't
pay attention to it and just accepted it. Apparently the blackberry
doesn't know how to handle categories and during a sync operation it
strips the spaces away from the categories and leaves the categories
separated by only a comma. This in turn updates Outlook and leaves it
in a "broken" state. I am going to follow up with Blackberry."

I do use a blackberry so this makes sense to me.  My question to Judy
is, what happened and do we have a resolution?

5.Category sort gets changed when adding category to multiple contac

If I choose multiple contacts to add or change a category to all of them for 
some odd reason it unalphabetizes the categories in each contact.  For 
instance, if I have a contact with categories: Associate, CE Invites, HR 
Committee and I add a category named Sponsor04 to this contact along with 
multiple others at once it unalphabetizes all of the categories in each 

I have tried selecting all of the same contacts and choosing Categories and 
then just clicking okay but it does not realphabetize them.  I have to go 
into every contact separately and go into categories and click okay on each 
one separately.

Please tell me there is another way around this??
