    i have about 50 business contacts and some i can't remember their name but i can remember what company they work for... when i do a search in my 650 it only searches first and last name... is there any way to add the company field to that?

    Thanks

    Are you searching using the option key and the magnifying glass? I just tested . . . and my search found a company name. . . .

    INFO: The way i was searching was: While looking at contacts just start typing the name i'm looking for and have it dwindle down to the contact i'm looking for. But it would only dwindle down on first and last name.

    was just floating around google groups and saw that option and it worked pretty good.

    Guess there is no way, when i'm in contacts, to just start typing a company name and be able to bring up a contact.

    I guess I'll get used to doing a search

    If you set preferences within contacts to company name, then that is what will be searched when you start typing. . . .

    menu>options>preferences. . . .

    hmmmm i just changed that and it still only searches first and last name.. even with (Company, Last Name) selected.

    It would be nice thought to search through ALL of the contact info when i start typing on the 650.

    I'll just start using the "Find".

    Cool. I have RTFM heaps of times but that little search hint didn't stick in my head. Thanks Perry "the save memory by loading the docs-to-go fix" man : )

    nope.. damn. for my example

    the company name is "AWT" and the contact name is Anthony. typing "AWT" or "awt" does not bring it up on my 650. But it does bring it up when i do a "Find" for "awt"

    I believe this only works if you don't have a name in the First, Last field...rather, just the Company Name only...IIRC

    oh yea.. but it still didn't search by company name lol I don't think the treo 650 does. That would be a good "hack" though when in contacts when you start typing to search ALL the fields like the "find" does... but only in contacts.

    FWIW, you can do this in Agendus.

    ok cool.. so final word on this is... you can not, while in contacts, just start typing on a treo 650 and it search the company field. you can only search first and last name..

    BUT i can stop being lazy and just hit the search button and find what i need perfectly anyway

    Correct, except if you have company first selected in preferences, typing will search for Companys that have no people attached. . .

    And, as his Blondeness said, Agendus looks for both. . .

    Cheers, Perry.

    Why Perry, if I didn't know any better, I would say you seem to be enamored with my new hairstyle and wardrobe!

    All Palm PDA's I've had before had "the company function"... Why not the 650... Does the Treo 600 have it? The Life Drive?
