Does Outlook 97 have an email auto-complete option?

I have Office 97 and have recently tried using Outlook. Outlook Express has an auto-complete feature for names in the address book.
I haven't been able to find such option in Outlook.
Does anyone know if there is one and how to activate it?

Mine was not "auto"

I had to click on some "check address" button.

Sorry I can't test this since we upgraded the office long ago to OL2000.

Sure it does

While I don't have it around here any more, I recall it is a property option of the Address book. Where you make the setting to use your AddressBook for address name completion.

Look at those AddressBook Options. I'm sure it is there somewhere.
