    Hello,

     

    I've found various suggestions for Foreing Key Fields to attach an autocomplete feature. However, I would like to know if it is possible for a varchar column (no foreign keys, or any key for dat matter)

    You have to use customized defination for that varchar foreign key, instead the default Microsoft doesn't offer such function.

    See the MVP's nice idea and sample;)
