I moved all of my Outlook contacts from the server to my iCloud account. They are shared between all of my apple devices. In addition, I have the iCloud control panel installed on my Outlook 2010 Windows client. I see the tree with contacts just fine. However, whenever I attempt to search for contacts in iCloud that have a Company Name or other related info, the search comes up empty. If I scroll through the list, however, they are right there. This has baffled me for some time and I'd like to resolve it. I thought it was an indexing problem but starting to wonder.

Yes. And actually my earlier post was a bit erroneous. It has nothing to do with company name. I have it in the view as well as the various name fields. When I have the list view of my iCloud contacts visible, I can do a CTRL E search on any of the names and it finds nothing. However, they are right there in the list. I do have iCloud selected as one of my search locations. I have uninstalled and reinstalled iCloud control panel. The contacts do show up as a folder, but simply not searchable which is frustrating. I have to manually scroll through the list to get a contact.

One other tid bit to add. I just found that if I search using CTRL E and it comes up with nothing found, click my cursor back into the CTRL E search field, and then on the toolbar above, click Current Folder, it finds my search criteria. However, searching standard CTRL E All Contacts, no go.

interesting. I'll look into that - when I tested the field name problem, I don't recall if it was all contacts or this one.
