I've been tasked to have master data for the workforce. The list creates and added as a list with over 2000 records. hence, I've created another list to get the calculated column from the master list. 

when I select the Personnel ID it gives me a long list as a dropdown menu. which is very hard to figure out.  So, I'm seeking your help for javascript that work in Sharepoint 2013-2019 to be added as script editor in (NEWFORM)

  • MasterSheet Name : Manpower
  • MasterSheet Colmn Name: Personnel No

the other list that I want to configure :

  • List Name: Test
  • Colmn Name: Personnel No

To perform a searchable column in SharePoint 2016 new form using JS, I think you have to use jQuery SPServices

Your JScode in Script Editor Web Part should be something like this

<script language="javascript" src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="javascript" src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery.SPServices/2014.02/jquery.SPServices-2014.02.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {

        $().SPServices.SPAutocomplete({

            sourceList: "< Source List Name >", // Source List Name
            sourceColumn: "Title", // Source List Column from where you want to fetch it.
            columnName: "DestinationListColumn", // Destination List Column where you want to add it.
            ignoreCase: true,
            numChars: 2,
            slideDownSpeed: 50,
           debug: true
        });

});
</script>

Note: sourceColumn should be the internal name of the column, not the displayname

As mentioned in the answer, you should use the Internal name for your column? Have you done this?

Greetings Mohammed, Yes i did it the  internal name is "Title"

the Manpower list was got from Excel Sheet using the Import Spreadsheet app and then the employee id was placed in Title field.

thanks.
If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
