Outlook 2007 contacts, file as company name

I've got a client that uses Outlook 2007.  The have approximately 1000 contacts and currently have them filed by Last Name, First Name using the business card view.  They would like to change all their contacts to have them filed by company name instead of Last Name, First Name.  I see how I can do that for new contacts, but I don't see how I can change the existing contacts to be filed like that.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Work around!

Change the company of one of your contacts to '1' or '1111' or a number like that.

Now group by Company Name, and drag all your 'None' Contacts from both groups into teh new group so that the all get Company Name 1.

Now delete the Company Name from one contact, and drag them all back again. They should all now be in the same group

I don't think that will accomplish the task of filing them by their company name.  I do understand that your instructions will accomplish putting all of those contacts in the same group, but that's not what I'm trying to do here.  The client likes to look people up and have them sorted according to their company name.  Which is the reason for filing them that way.
