Search iCloud contacts from Outlook 2010 CTRL-E

Outlook version
Outlook 2010 64 bit

Exchange Server
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.
Is the company name in the view? I've noticed that iot seems like search only returns results from iCloud if the field is in the view.

Is the iCloud enabled as a location to search - Ctrl+E, Search tools to check.
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.
