Next, click on the Advanced option on the left and click on Lookup Suggestion Columns.  Scroll to the value you want to change.  For example, to change the lookup filter for Lease, scroll to LEAS. 

Next, type in the name of the field you wish to search on.  In the example below, we want to search by the Occupant Name.  The name of this field is OCCPNAME.
