    Using Office 2010 and Win 7 64 bit. Outlook 2010 search does not work. Any attempt to search contacts, calendar, etc brings result "no matches found for __". Any ideas, fixes, etc ? Thanks.

    Have you checked the search index settings to make sure your PST file is included?

    Have you tried rebuilding the search index?

    Some people have had good luck by deselecting everything in the search index options, re-booting, and then re-selecting the locations you wish to index.

    Found a suggestion on another website to reinstall Office 2010 in repair mode. Tried that did not help. Tried Joe's suggestion again -- it worked this time.
    So.. Fix seems to be (for me anyway) (1) reinstall Office 2010 (repair mode), then (2) deselect index items, re-boot, select index items.

    Long way around but at least you resolved it. Thanks for posting your solution.

    BTW this thread was just cited in the Windows Secrets newsletter, so we are now famous.

    May I suggest a much shorter solution: check the view and see if there isn't any filter in action. Worked for me just fine. Most likely reinstalling the office suite (suggested in a previous post) did just that: remove the filter...
