Can anyone point me to how to do this? My google searches must be off as I am not seeing what I need. Basically I need a drop down list of existing fields to choose from(this part I know how to do) with an additional field that user can enter some value(this part I dont know how to do in addition to drop down frields).

There is no HTML control that does that on its own. You'll need to look for a JavaScript composite control that suits your needs. Perhaps you could look at the jQuery UI Auto-completer.

As this has nothing to do with JSP, it's been moved to a more appropriate forum.
