I want to search a value list so that when the user enters the first alphabet of the word it shows all the items from the list with the first alphabet and then when he enters the second it searches for combination of first and secod alphabet and so on.Is it possible to be done using file maker.

Thank You

It sounds like you want "type-ahead". It can be done in FMP, it's not that difficult but it's a bit of work and requires quite a bit of knowledge.

There used to be a sample file on the www.databasepros.com web site under the name "clairvoiance."

Well I have found a solution to this I created a related file and used the relation for the value list.The realtion would be based on a Calculation field using left(valuelistfield,1).So it filters the item starting with the first letter.I am just wondering if there is a way it just pops with out click on the field while just entering the data
