Thanks for answer!!
But when I write in form field "keyword1 + keyword2", then in the action file how can I difference the keyword1 and keyword2, because now "keyword1 + keyword2" is a whole string!! I have to seperate them first, I think!! Then I can use "SELECT * from Name Where columname LIKE KeyworD1 OR COLOUMNAME LIKE KEYWORD2"

Thanks again!!!

If you don't need to search on substrings you might try something like:

  SELECT au_lname
    FROM authors
   WHERE au_lname in('Bennet', 'Dull')

If you do use the LIKE operator, be sure to include '%' on one or both ends of the string to be search for.  For example:

  SELECT au_lname
    FROM authors
   WHERE au_lname LIKE 'smi%'
