Filter ASP database form using single drop down list or search box

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have a growing table of staff that I can add or edit staff on ASP forms with ADODB connections. At the bottom of the edit staff page are navigation buttons (next, previous, first, last). The user is having to click the Next button multiple times to scroll through the records on the form.

Can someone give me some ideas of how I can put a search box for the last name, or a combo box drop down that filters the form so that the person can quickly jump to a specific name? In
Access, I would have a search field and when they click the button, it jumps to a field and finds the first record with the search string. Can this be done in Dreamweaver or ASP?
