The function will look in a big table of about 100,000 entrie for SKU code and manufacturer)
and will show result in the page (max 10 first result)
the user will be able to enter a number within a result line and post the form to tell the page the number and sku number to be recorded.
the 100,000 line of (manufacturer_id, sku,description, status, qty/box, price) data will need to be uploaded on user computer. and it should not change more then 3-4 time a year so maybe just check on the website if the file have changed first before downloading it.
I am about sure someone have done somthing similar like [url removed, login to view] and that it will be an easy job to create that .js file.
you can define the format of the dataset. it is currently in an excel spreadsheet.

100000 is very much, I expected very slow operation. But I just did some tests, which have shown good results. See the private message for some notes and questions.
