Combo Box selection

I have a drop down box of names in my vb form.  When the user initially enters a letter, I want the box to display the begining name of that letter.  For example, if I type "M"   Then you will see the first word that starts with "M"  How do I do this?

Set the style property of the combo box to Dropdown List. It will be automatically be acquired.
