I use OL 2003 and get the following error message no matter what contact's
name I type.

"Outlook could not find requested contact."

What setting do I need to change?  Thank you for your help.

Where do you type .. while composing a new message and in the TO field ?

Can you open all the contacts going to CONTACTS folder ?

I am typing the last name of the contact in the field (box) to the right of the word "Find" in the toolbar.  It works fine on my other computer.  

Yes I can open all of the contacts which I am trying to "Find" if I scroll down to them contact and then double-click the contact.  

What next?

Why dont you click on FIND
and type in the box after the words "Look for " and select
contacts under "Search in"

Yes, I should have caught it myself.  But I didn't.  So I am thankful for the answer.  Thanks to both of you for the help.

bobsing,

You know what I was thinking you were not able to find the contacts going to find ..
Not sure whether you were trying to search correctly in the FIND box

Thanks to Vahik for figuring out that address book is the issue
