I have uploaded the demo but its not functioning, I have an access database with a list of countries. I want it to autocomplete the countries based on the demo I have left the javascript id for the form elements as is. My demo code is as following:

<!--- A simple form for auto suggest --->
<cfform action="autosuggest.cfm" method="post">
	Park Name:<br />
    <cfinput type="text" name="parkname" size="50" autosuggest="cfc:autosuggest.findPark({cfautosuggestvalue})" autosuggestminlength="1" maxresultsdisplayed="10" /><br /><br />
</cfform>

The function as mentioned in the tutorial

<cfcomponent output="false">

	<!--- Lookup used for auto suggest --->
	<cffunction name="findPark" access="remote" returntype="string">
		<cfargument name="search" type="any" required="false" default="">
		
		<!--- Define variables --->
		<cfset var local = {} />
		
		<!--- Query Location Table --->
		<cfquery name="local.query" datasource="dbtest" >
			select		Country
			from		Cities
			where		Country like <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar" value="#ucase(arguments.search)#%" />
			order by	Country
		</cfquery>

		<!--- And return it as a List --->
		<cfreturn valueList(local.query.Country)>
	</cffunction>

</cfcomponent>

In for instance you change the statement and it should work. Please help :) is there anything I left out.
