Can someone please help? This represents a significant timesaver when it
works...

On the Advanced Find dialog, click File/Save as Search Folder. In the search
folder you can select all of the found items, categorize them, and then you
might delete the folder.

Well I would that's losing a useful feature. Now it is such a time taking
process. I tried to customize the advanced search features but you can't any
menu from Action toolbar available to any mail/item.

Alternate Way would be to flag all messages for lets say "No Date" Category
and in To-Do bar mark the categories you want. Then remove them from To-Do
bar.

Hope this might help although I myself feel the loss of this useful feature.

I think a search folder is every bit as fast as setting a flag then going to
the to-do to set the category - especially if you use the no date flag on
other items. if it's a search folder you are unlikely to use again, name it
1 so its at the top of the search folder list then delete when done. If
you'll use it more, you'll save yourself time the next time you need to
repeat the search.

The only thing you can do in advanced find is customize the view. You can't
do much with it once customized - in-cell editing is disabled along with all
the good r-click stuff

Although Mike Bauer's solution works and was a great help, it is not really a
solution but rather a workaround to what is one of the greatest sources of
frustration since the company I work for decided to "upgrade". The feature is
greatly missed in 07. Dear MS please please please bring it back!
Thx,
Oscar

In what might be good news, Categories is on the context menu in advanced
find. Unfortunately, it doesn't include any categories to pick from. The
quick click field works though. I'll file a bug on it.
