AutoComplete a text field with DataBase driven results

Hey everyone,

My accounting peeps are wanting to start a form with a textfield that has a database driven autocomplete feature...I'm thinking that they are wanting something like MS Access would have on a datapage where you would start typing say...

AT

and because the first 2 letters match 1 of the entries in the database, then

ATM Outlet

would fill in the rest of the text field.  

Is this possible...with CF, Javascript, Ajax???  I really haven't searched a lot and am thinking it could be anywhere
