Removing an incorrect name/address from Outlook

I have Outlook 2003. In my contacts list I have an address that keeps coming up when I type in a name from my contacts listing. The original name and address was incorrect so I corrected it and did the update. Now when I type in the name and outlook does the auto recognition both the correct address and incorrect address pop up. The only name showing in the contacts list is the name with the correct address. How can I locate the incorrect name/address and delete it?

When the auto-complete box appears, use the arrow keys to select the old or bad entry, then click Del. That should remove it.
