Filter a form when typing in a text box

I'm trying to filer records being displayed in a form when the user types in a text box.  This what I have in the onchange event of the form but if I try to type "123" as an example, it replaces the "1" with a "2" when I type the "2".

I also want it to display ALL records that contain "123" in the street address.

    Me.Filter = "StreetAddress like '" & Me.txtFindStreetAddress.Text & "*'"
    Me.FilterOn = True

use the onchange event..read your input and filter your data with LIKE

I don't understand.  I am using the onchange event but it isn't working as I stated.
