    Need help extracting specific records from MS Outlook contacts. I have an Outlook contacts file that has multiple catagories in the catagorie field, I need to delete contacts that have "personal" in the catagorie field even if the catagorie field has other catagories in it (i.e. personal, New York, Plumber) I need to delete the whole record and not just the record with personal in the catagorie field. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Frank

    For this question, we really need to know the Outlook Version you need assistance with. Always great to include core info about the computer, operating system, service packs, software and versions for faster resolutions.

    This situation is unique, so no it's no solved, because the catagorie field has multiple entries I can not sort on that field. If I do view bt that field it does put them in the order by each entrie in that field but because of the multiple entries when I delete the item with let say "personal" in the catagorie field the person stays in the contacts because it also had "accountant" and "New York" in the catagorie field as well.
