If you're talking about typing into a list and jumping to matching
entries, here's how Microsoft talks about it in their VBA Help.
Basic matching. The control searches for the next entry that starts with
the character entered. Repeatedly typing the same letter cycles through
all entries beginning with that letter.
Extended matching. As each character is typed, the control searches for
an entry matching all characters entered.
So extended matching describes the process. Won't work very well as
"extended find" but I'm not sure the operation should be described as
any kind of "find" in the first place. If it's what I talked about in my
first para, I would think of that as matching.
