1.  By entering the contact name (or a portion of it) into the first or last name fields in the program and pressing the FIND keys.  This action will cause the system to display the contact record most closely matching the information keyed into the field.  Once a contact record is displayed, you may use the FIND PREVIOUS and FIND NEXT keys to scroll through the contact records until the correct contact is displayed in the View.
