Combo Box for Long List

Good Afternoon,

I have a list of 175 names that I would like to put in a ComboBox or something similar. Since this is such a long list, I'm trying to find a way to allow the user to enter the first digit(s) in the box and be taken to that place in the the list. For example, when the user types in a 5, the first name beginning with a 5 shows up in the box, you can continue scrolling through the list to get to the proper name.

Hope that makes sense. I have no idea what it is called, but I know I see this type of option on lots of things I have used.

Thanks!

An ActiveX combo box does that as the default behavior?

Wow - yes, you're totally correct. I thought there was something I had to "turn on" to make it do that. Thank you so much.
