Let us say I want to create sample data for my analytics class for a customer. I dont have access to the actual customer data. But I want the data to look familiar to the participants. I want to use the names of their products in sample data containing 1000 rows. I could use Randbetween() with Vlookup but that gives me almost equal distribution for all products. I want to make the data look realistic. I want to use the market share values of their products to generate the sample data. Here is how you do it. 3.5 minute video.

This article is relevant only for people who conduct demos or training on Outlook. During demos we create custom color categories. These categories remain customized for the next demo as well. Ideally I would want the categories to have default names (Red Category, Blue Category and so on). How to clean all of them quickly just before the demo? Simple.
Start Outlook with the Startup Switch /clearcategories
<office installation path>\outlook.exe /clearcategories.
This DOES NOT remove custom categories which have already been applied to Outlook items like mails, appointments or tasks. These have to be removed separately. But it does remove the custom descriptions. Now the category dialog looks like this.
Final article in the series.
