I have seen people create a link to a pop-up window next to the a text 
input box.  The pop-up window has a scrolling, possibly paged list of 
the descriptions you want the users to be able to select from.  Each 
description is a hyperlink and when the user clicks on one of the 
descriptions, the pop-window closes and uses javascript to update the 
input text field with the code corresponding to the link the user 
clicked on.
