3. Click the Categories button at the bottom of the form.
4. Select the appropriate check box from the Available Categories list box, or enter a custom category in the Item(s) Belong To These Categories list box, and then click the Add To List button.
5. Click OK to close the Categories dialog box.
To display your calendar by a category:
