List box and searching


I have a form functioning searching using a list box.
The list box is bounded with hundreds of records.
I would like to start with nothing listed in the list box and the records are listed after I search something.
Actually it doesn't have to be a list box but any type of design could be fine.
Please refer to the following image!

First, welcome to Bytes!

Second, instead of posting a link to an image, please upload an image using the "Advanced" button when you post something.

Third, I think I might kinda understand what you are talking about, but I am not quite sure. Let me see if this describes it properly: You have a form with a list box on it. When you first open the form, you want the list box to be empty, with no records displayed. However, when you select an item from the list box, you want to display the records on the form which correspond to the selection in the list box. Is that correct? If so, that is very possible and we can hepp work through that once we see what your form looks like and how it is set up.

If not, please provide additional details so we can work through a solution with you.

Normally this would be done using a search as you type combobox. For example, see this example by Allen Browne: Find As You Type.
Another possibility when you have thousands of records is to use cascading comboboxes. See this example on my website: Cascading Comboboxes
