<option value="*">All</option>

should do it ;-)

And change:

      while( rs.next() )
      {
%>
    <tr>
      <td align=center><%= rs.getString( "skillid" ) %></td>
      <td align=center> <%= rs.getString( "skilldescription" ) %></td>
    </tr>
<%
      }

to:

      if( rs.next() )
      {
          do
          {
%>
    <tr>
      <td align=center><%= rs.getString( "skillid" ) %></td>
      <td align=center> <%= rs.getString( "skilldescription" ) %></td>
    </tr>
<%
          } while( rs.next() ) ;
      }
      else
      {
<%
    <tr>
      <td colspan="2" align=center>Sorry, no results found</td>
    </tr>
%>
      }

How do i ask it to search for other fields as well and not just skilldescription:

When i tried this , i got error

 where += "( skilldescription LIKE '%" + word +"%',skillid LIKE '%" + word + "%')" ;
