    Can I auto-fill an entire multi-line text field?

    Pete

      I have a database that has a text field that typically contains several lines delimited by returns - comparable to an address.  I have been exploring setting it to be auto-complete, but when I type in a start, I only get the part of the previously-entered text before the first return.  I would like to have the auto-complete function return the entire contents of the text field.  Is this possible?

       

      Example:

       

      I am making an entry for which the desired auto-returned contents of the text field would be

      Poudrette Quarry

      Mont Saint-Hilaire

      Quebec, Canada

       

      but when I type in "Pou" all I get is

      Poudrette Quarry

       

      then I have to start all over on the second line with "Mont..."

       

      At least for my application, this essentially reduces the value of the auto-complete function for this field to zero....
