In Import template, narrow results as value is typed for attributes which use Enum_Ranges

When selecting a value from a drop down list in the import template, it does not narrow the results to the value you are typing. For example if you had a range of values from AAA to ZZZ and you start typing J it doesn't skip down to the J values. You need to scroll down through the list of values to get to the J's. Our users noted that this isn't really a time saver compared to just typing the value and may be more error prone as it would be easy to select the wrong value from a long list compared to the list of options slowly being reduced as you type one letter at a time.

    The request here is not related to any product feature. The desired behavior is related to Microsoft Excel and hence we do not have any control over it.
