I have a drop down list in my form with contains a lot of different numbers, text, countries, cities and states, etc.

I would like the user to either have the option to only use the drop down list or they can type "Zapple" or any portion and have it populate the value.

Is there a setting or code which I can use which will do this?

Currently, if the user types the first letter or number it will take them to the beginning of the list (since I have them listed alphabetically/numerically), but I'd prefer they can type beyond the first character and pinpoint the option they're looking for.

Thank you for any help

The whole sample will need to be updated. As I said in the email it can be done but it will be complex. This particular sample requires an external xml file. You will need to pull this from data in the form.

You are looking for an auto complete feature. I have a file that I think is what you want. If you provide your email address I can send it to you.
