Drop List Progressive Search - How To?

Drop List Progressive Search - How To?

Hi All,

I am wanting to create a drop list box which when you enter and type a letter or number the current hilighted entry seraches progressively.

For example if I have a drop list of names and enter B the list moves to the head of Names beginning with B, if I then enter R it will move to the start of names beginning BR and not to those beginning R.

Is this possible...if so how?

Many Thanks In Anticipation
