set Auto-complete fields

Auto-complete is a data entry aid for Text fields introduced in FileMaker Pro 8. When the user types new data into a field that's been set to auto-complete, FileMaker consults the index for the field, attempting to match the typed characters with those of previously entered data. Thus, if you think data will be reused in a particular field, you can speed data entry by enabling auto-complete for the field.
