Aha! I found the solution - it is enough to specify asterisk ('*') 
for search value, i.e. if I run:

ldapsearch -x -D "address@hidden" -b "dc=isd,dc=dp,dc=ua" -W -h server 
"cn=Serge*"

I get a lot of Serge's ;)

And eudc-query-form with asterisk works too! That's great!

I used your settings so I don't know are they valid for my exchange
server. How can I check this?

Are these settings used for inline expansion or to query form?

I see word 'inline' so I suppose that they are invalid?

So you see these lines in the second buffers when trying to expand inline?
Great!

Yes!

OK, here is my value:

eudc-inline-query-format's value is 
((sn)
 (givenName)
 (givenName sn)
 (mailNickname)
 (sAMAccountName))

And here is the contents of my .eudc-options file:

(provide 'eudc-options-file)
(setq ldap-host-parameters-alist '(("server.isd.dp.ua"
                                    base "dc=isd,dc=dp,dc=ua"
                                    binddn "ISD\\solo"
                                    passwd "***"
                                    auth simple))
      ldap-ldapsearch-args '("-x")
      eudc-expansion-overwrites-query t
      eudc-inline-query-format (quote ((sn) (givenName) (givenName sn)
                                       (mailNickname) (sAMAccountName)))
      eudc-strict-return-matches nil
      eudc-inline-expansion-format (quote ("%s <%s>" cn email)))
(eudc-set-server "server.isd.dp.ua" 'ldap t)
(setq eudc-server-hotlist 'nil)

Thank you for your help!
