typable combo box??

Hi,

I have a combo box which looks up the authorname table.
This combo box is pretty long and I am trying to make it easy for users to find this name from the combo box.

I am looking for a functionality like as you type, possible names wil show up.

Is this doable using the combo box? What control do I need to use?

I need to find a name and save it.

This is a built-in feature of Access.  As you type, you should go to the next match in the combo box list.  Is that not happening?

You are right. Thank for pointing that out.
It is working. The problem was I tied the primary key and name together to display so when the users were typing a name it didn't show up becuase it started with number then name.
Thanks.
