combobox autoexpand strange behavior

I have a combobox whose rowsource is: select last & ", " & first from mailingList, and autoexpand is True.
I have a person in the mailingList with last = "I" and first = "P".
When I type 'i' in the combobox I, P appears (as expected), but then the insertion point jumps to just past the I and autoexpand does not respond as expected to entry of a 2nd last name letter. Any thoughts?

Try using the keyword "Distinct" as discussed in this link:

         select DISTINCT last & ", " & first from mailingList
