Hi there,

Currently I am making an payroll system using VB6. There is a form where it is used as a search form. We will input the name in the search bar. So what I want to ask is that, is it possible that without clicking the search button and by just inputting a single letter like "A" the whole records with "A" will appear instantly, just like in google. when you type a single letter, names or data already appears below. Is it possible to do that in VB6? By the way I will be using an ADO data grid to view the employees.

Yes. Search the web for "VB6 autofill" and you should find some examples. It's relatively complicated.
