this is a search as you type statement...

Currently, the system auto-selects the first result returned, if I try to enter “smith”, the system defaults to arrowsmith as that’s the first result returned.

Can i prevent this from happening?

select userid, (last_name + '; ' +first_name+' ['+UPPER(userid)+']') as appr_name 
from zusm_approvers 
where general_approver = 1 and userid not in ('%USER_ID%') and (last_name+';'+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+'; '+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+';'+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+','+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR first_name+';'+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR first_name+ SPACE(1)+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' )  ORDER BY last_name,first_name
