Default Change font color by category

I'm a novice to Outlook / Outlook programming. But, what I need to do is
make the font of the individual appointments ("events") be different colors,
based on what category I've assigned. (I've defined about 8 categories).

What I'm trying to accomplish is get a monthly calendar that (on view/print)
has distinctive colors per category (of the 8 categories -- not all provided
categories).

Can I manage this?

Thanks so much, in advance!

Default Change font color by category

The font color for a day/week/month view can't be changed. You can, however, change the background color to one of the color labels by setting up automatic formatting on the view to apply a label per category.

In other words, this isn't a programming issue, at least not based on what you've told us so far.

Defining the background color label per category works nicely. Thanks so
much for your help, Sue.
