which input field?
if you want to put all selected SKU found to an input, use an array and push every result inside :

   $(function() {  
      var myTagKey = []; 

      $("#tags").autocomplete({
         source:  testSource,
         select: function(event, ui) {
                 myTagKey = ui.item.tagkey; 
                 myTagKey.push(myTagKey);
                 $("#foundtagkey").html("SKU: "+myTagKey.join(" ,"));

I don't understand the problem.

The code appears to work correctly.

Auto complete on first input popuplates second and third?

How do you replicate the problem you are having?

the problem was that it was writing the list over the input box. since it worked for you, i looked in the .js files that i was using and changed appendTo from null to body and then set message='' so that no message would be returned
