Thanks, but maybe it is I who is unclear. Where (above) you explain "This" is 
not a search field, are you referring to the "item" field or the "amount" field?

What I was observing was the case where

- I have inputted a value into (let's call it "item 1") into "item"

- an auto-search occurs … here I am not sure whether you are referring to 
auto-searching for a match on "item 1" or a corresponding (related) financial 
amount but in any event, provided that what I entered into "item 1" is an 
existing item with a corresponding, related financial amount, that amount 
displays automatically. Maybe you are referring to this as the "suggested 

- at this point, without my either committing or cancelling the transaction, I 
recognize that I had inputted the wrong item code, and I alter the value of 
"item 1" to be "item 2" and I then I then hit return, and observe no change in 
the "suggested" amount despite that "item 2" is likewise an existing value with 
a related "suggested" amount already defined in the database.

Thus I was imagining this a sign of a problem, because there *does* exist, in 
my database for item 2, a reference amount, and I could not understand why the 
same procedure as caused "item 1" to cause the "reference amount 1" to be 
displayed would not, upon the user altering the value of "item 1" into "item 
2", cause a new lookup.
