Speeding lookup by using Java to dynamically update lists

I am having problems with DBCol and DBLookup on a Web form. Basically, I have three drop-down based on the DBCOL and DBLOOKUP function. Every time I select one of the choices the Web form takes some time to refesh. Is there any way I can use Java script to dynamically update lists without going to the server and if I could save the list in a variable?
It sound like you have a server speed problem making your lookup take a long time. Javascript can be used, but you'll need to load all of the lookup data in your form which make take longer.
