    In AD Users and Computers:

    1. Go to View > Filter Options
    2. Create custom filter, click Customize
    3. Click Advanced
    4. Enter LDAP query: (cn=*07*)
    5. Click OK twice


    ADUC will refresh, now when you go to any OU it will only display accounts with 07 in the common name. Don't forget to set it back to "Show all types of objects" afterwards.

    More on LDAP queries can be found here: Search Filter Syntax (Windows)
