Search records


     Hi everyone!

     I created a "search engine" like for a data base and I need your opinion....

     I have a list of names on a table and need a box with auto-complete that takes you to the related record.

     What I did is to create a new table with just one field to use as a global field, then created a relationship with the field containing the names to find.

     Then I created a new layout based on the search table and created a drop box with auto-complete and using a list value based on the field containing the names in the original table. 

     Finally, created a simple script with go to the related record using the main layout.

     So, is that a good way?

     Thank you for reading.
