When the end user accessed the Address Book, selected an option from the Category Descriptor dropdown list, and clicked Search, OP software displayed no search results.
Updated the software to ensure that the Category Descriptor options successfully filter the search functionality and that OP software displays all matching search results when the end user selects a Category Descriptor.
