I have little knowledge on Java Script, but what I am trying to do is have a dropdown list with salesman names and also a "type in" option if the name is not listed. I was thinking that I could have this drop down list with a text field behind it and then run a script to whenever the "type in" is selected in the drop down, it disables the dropdown and the text field appears. Is this possible or is there a different way to do this?

A dropdown can be set up to allow the user to enter text as well. You'll see the option on the Options tab of the dropdown properties dialog ("Allow user to enter custom text").
