Is there a simple way to change the list on a combo box  in Access as you type?

I will be gratefull if I could receive any simple sample that I can understand and apply to my application .The question says it all...

Better if this sample could use  as the row source a table with 2 fields: ID and DescriptionText where the user would type strings to be located in the DescriptionText but the ID field would be saved.

Thanks in advance.
