      Hi All,

      I have a database of customers (about 6000 entries).
      I need an easy way for the user to select a customer - The idea the client
      and myself have had, is to have a scrolling list of all cleients, and a
      seperate 1 line text box for free text to be input -> as a client name is
      typed in, the items in the scrolling text box is reduced to just ones that
      contain the sting entered.
      eg. if the list contained Ace plumbers, Bobs Hardware, The Bookstore......
      and 'bo' was entered.... the list would have Bobs Hardware, The
      Bookstore......

      OK, the question..... Anyone know how to attach this idea? even if it needs
      an xtra?


      Cheers,


      Tim.
