Outlook 2007 - Change Check Names Punctuation Effect

In Outlook Express 2003, Check Names (Ctrl+K) would ignore punctuation. But Outlook 2007 doesn't. For example, in OE 2003, you could type
    bob s w
and have it find
    Bob Smith (Work)

But in Outlook 2007, it won't find that address.

Can this be changed?

Have a look at how the addresses are represented in Contacts. They are different in OL 2007 so you need to type it differently

Oh well. Guess I'll have to change my display names or change what I'll type in.
