Hello,

I want to find contacts according to their birthdates but grouped by
months. For example in Advance Find if I choose "this month" Condition,
it should display only those contacts with birthdate in October.
However it looks like Outlook finds and sort according to the year of
birth. Is there any way to find and group according to month of birth.

OS: Windows XP
OFFICE: MS Office 2003.
Outlook 2003.

Regards,
Faisal.

try using the recurring field, not the date field.

see http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/birthday.htm for some ideas on how to
do this.
