Search name in NAB through web - for pcorreya

I would be very interested to know how you did this, if you're not using a @DbColumn to display names in a combobox.
Since where I work the address book contains over 100000 people, you can image that the 64K limit is a barrier I'd like to cross.
You can send a sample database to jean-marie.geeraerts@philips.com

Thanks in advance!!

I use a list box to populate the results, I am not sure on the limit for a list box ? Anyway, I shall send you the code on Monday when I get to work.

Hello, agent Mulder,
What are you thinking about ? What extra elements and what would I use them for ?
I've got a solution with a HTML-file stored on the server, but I don't like that, since I want the "picklist" to be dynamically created from the address book and not from a daily runnng agent.

Nope, just was away sailing for the weekend.
I haven't looked at the db yet, but I trust you it will work.
I'll also post a question for Agent Mulder, since his solution seems to be equally useful.

Thanks to you both !!

Hi martijnmulder

I am interested in seeing your solution, if you don't mind if you can email me the db to pcorreya@bigpond.com. I can send you my address dialog box if you want.

Thanks
