The AutoComplete box in an iframe object may not appear in the correct location in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6. Additionally, you cannot resolve this problem by applying hotfix 920681.


This problem occurs because of behavior that occurs if the iframe object has a relative position style. In this case, Internet Explorer does not include the offset of the iframe object correctly when Internet Explorer calculates the position of the AutoComplete box.
