Search in Outlook 2007 custom categories

ggoble asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We have a public contacts folder in Exchange that we have created a custom form for with categories integrated in the form so we don't need to update everyone's Master Category List.  We used info on this site to create it http://www.outlookcode.com/d/forms/reqcat.htm.  It works great, except when we go to Search in outlook 2007 by categories it shows only a drop down list of the categories on the local PC's Master Category list.  I don't care about having a drop down list just a box to type in is fine.  How can we fix this to be able to search by categories?
