Lookup outlook 2003 contacts by First name or Last name

When I enter the First name, the names show up, but when I type in a contacts last name, the contact doesn't show up. I would like to be able to look up a contact by typing either the first name or lastname - instead of always having to type in the first name. Can this be done in Outlook 2003? This is when composing an email.

For contacts you can set how they are displayed (Tools/Options/Contact options) because sometimes the global address book display name is different from the outlook address book (contacts). I don't really know a way to achieve what you want. Personaaly I just type part of the first or last name in the To box and hit ctrl+k to resolve...
