hiya I'm trying to implement a lookup/auto-complete from a file into one of my fields. i'm struggling to wrap my head around how to approach this.


This is what I'm trying to implement in a user friendly manner. (ATM I just have to manually lookup the values in the text file)



I tried adding it as a list of values but the file is too big for that.



also at first i was thinking of just manualy creating multiple conditional lists but that would effectively stop people from being able to search for the right option.


any suggestions? i'm still very new to filemaker so they can be as basic as poss. :/


thank you!
