How do I get a string to be completed and finished by entering the first letter of a previously filled string in a textbox like the latest IE and Excel will remember. Any active x available to do this?

Create a collection and whenever a text is entered also append it in the collection.
In the change event of the text box search all the elements in the collection and if matching put it in the textbox.
hope it helps
