As it stands FM8's new Auto Complete only works on value lists that contain only one field. If you have a value lists that uses a second field you cannot use this feature.

I find this rather unfortunate because in my opinion auto complete is most useful when you are dealing with very large value lists. These large value lists are the ones that most often represent an object from another table (ex. list of authors). In these cases I am constantly using a numerical ID to relate the tables and only show the textual data (ex. author's name) in the value list and layout.
