Not quite understanding your question...Are you using FIND To find something in contacts folder ?
What do you mean by changing fields ?

Yes I am using Find.

If I add a company name of "AAA" and type AAA in the Find field it finds record ok.
If I add a Business phone number of "0161" and type 0161 in the Find field it doesn't find the record.

I would like to change it so that I can search on Business telephone number

*************
By using the Find pane to search Contacts by any frequently used field or using Advanced find to restrict searches to one field, you can search for any information stored in your Contacts.

Enter phone numbers without punctuation, i.e. 4235551212 format.

Use Advanced Find, Advanced tab to restrict address lookups to part of a phone number, street name or number by selecting the appropriate field name and using Begins with, Ends with, or Contains as the condition.
