Hello everyone,

I'm cleaning data and prototyping rudimentary databases in 
Mathematica.  I have a few data arrays, consisting of a few thousand 
lines each.  I'd like to be able to search the arrays for lines 
(lists) containing search strings by typing into a text field and having 
the hits appear as I'm typing the search string, sort of like 
Spotlight on the Mac does.  This may be something as simple as using 
Select within the Manipulate combined with ControlActive.  Has anyone 
tinkered with something like this?

Gregory
