Filter Data in Combo Box or List Box as you Type
In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I'll guide you on how to filter data in a combo box or list box as you type. This skill is especially useful when you're trying to locate text that isn't at the start of the combo box and doesn't appear automatically due to the auto-expand property.
Sam from Jacksonville, Florida (a Platinum member) asks: I just watched your search-as-you-type video, and I think it's awesome! Thank you for that. Is there any way you can apply the same technique to a combo box or list box? I'm looking for a functionality where, as I type characters, it will filter the results in that box to show just the records that contain that text, regardless of where it appears in the field.
There is no extended cut, but here's my database:
