ADUC Find... based on employeeID attribute.

Hi all,
I am trying to accomplish some queries in Active Directory, and I was wondering as to whether it was possible. here's my scenario.

I have implemented the employeeID attribute in my environment, as it is a unique ID across my enterprise.
I am trying to create a small tool for the helpdesk within ADUC that would allow them to query for a user, using the employeeID.
Currently, typing a value of an existing entry in the employeeID value does not return any results. so, apparently, the regular find... only searches in some of the main AD fields.
first question: is it easy to include the employeeID field in the regular find field?

If not, is there any way that I can perhaps create a task pad view in ADUC that would allow the user to type a partial or full employeeID, and have it return the result? (WITHOUT having the user to go to browse for the exact field they are looking for.)
Is that something available within ADUC Find... /Saved Queries ? or would i have to write a small VBScript to do this?
any help would be appreciated.
