auto complete Web serach

tuchfeld asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
My site is Joomla (php) based. I have an Excel (xls) file
that I need to preform a Web search on it.
The search should have the fields as the columns of the table
and have the auto complete feature.
e.g. if there are fields called "Avenue" and another "Avabla".
and the user type "av" it should suggest both options.
Also, since the xsl file has many rows (> 50,000), I prefer to transform it to a different format (like Xml maybe?) and not to an SQL table.
Thanks, Aryeh.
