Key a name, surname first, into the Filter textbox. The list of names below the Filter includes the names of the people that match the filter. Key a comma and a space after the surname before keying the given name.

The list is updated as you type. Key the shortest value that includes the person of interest without excessive scrolling.

Names are listed alphabetically by surname, then by given name and the other name parts. People with the same name are listed in ascending order by birth date.

To select a person, click once on a name in the list and then click the [OK] button. Alternatively, double-click a name in the list.
