Replicating MS Access  - "Find a record on my form based on the value I selected in my combo box"

Post

I would like to have a combo box (drop down) containing the values of the current form/layout and, when I select from the list, the form/layout jumps to that record.

I'm very new to Filemaker (10) and when I've tried creating a drop down list as an extra field on a layout it simply changes the main value on the displayed record

It is a customer database with a portal (detail) listing of purchases under it. I like to search for the customer using a drop down list box (like a combo box in MS Access) the highlights what I'm looking for as i type and then 'fetches' or displays the matching record.

I'm quite good at MS Access but I'm trying to get up to speed on Filemaker because I've got the iPad version too to sync/copy/paste to.
