How to control sort order of contacts list when creating new message in Outlook 2003

I have one computer with outlook 2003 that will search my contacts list by the last name when creating a new message and accessing it through the To: button. When I setup another computer with outlook 2003 and imported the same contacts into it, the contacts appear and search on the first name rather than the last name.  How can I make it search by last name.
