Searching contacts between multiple users

Our executive assistants normally have  delagate access to other peoples contacts and calenders within outlook. The problem is that when they try to use the search function to locate a contact for the peole's contacts they have access to, the function does not work. When they try using the search function within their own contacts, it works. Anyway to have this work across the board?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Well I was thinking a there may be two ways around this.
1. you could have the exec or someone from the execs account share contacts with the assistant by going to the contact section, then select share my contacts. send to whomever would need to search them.

2. or add the assistant to the viewing permissions, under contact options. Right click on contacts then select change sharing permissions. add them there they will then be able to pull up these contacts whenever.
