Auto Complete Textbox or Editable Dropdown (VB style)

Hi,
Is there a way to have a "Auto Complete" textbox or a "editable"
dropdown?
Here is my problem.
I have a screen that need to have a list of 800+ employees. To be a
dropdown, that could be a lot of scrolling. and to enter the name in a
textbox leaves too many possible typos. So, is there a control that will do
a auto complete in the textbox as I type the name or have a combo box that I
could type and auto complete like in VB?

thanks.
