Overview

You can search for events, tasks, notes, and contacts by using the Search window. This window is displayed when the Search command on the Edit menu is used. Search results will be displayed in the Event List, Task List, Note List, or Contact List, depending on the type of data searched. The only functional difference between using this window and commanding searches directly from the "Search" field in the list views is the search can be narrowed down to specified fields. When searching from the list views, all fields will be searched, which could cause more search results to appear than expected.
