Is it possible to use autocomplete in a Multi-line text column? I have a list of addresses that I want to reference using autocomplete but I can only get it to work in a single line column which messes with the formatting when I insert the info into a word template I am using for invoices. Below is what I use for the single line. Can this be changed to work with a multi-line text column

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery.SPServices/2014.02/jquery.SPServices-2014.02.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
            sourceList: "SourceListName",
            sourceColumn: "SourceColumnName",
            columnName: "DestinationColumnName",
            ignoreCase: true,
            numChars: 2,
            slideDownSpeed: 'fast'

Can this be changed to work with a multi-line text column?

As a short answer: No,

The SPServices.SPAutocomplete doesn't support Multi-line text column, it only supports a single line of text column to provide values from a SharePoint list.
