$query = "select * from vendor where (businessname OR primarycontact OR estimatingcontact OR ownerofficercontact) like \"%$trimmed%\" order by businessname"; // EDIT HERE and specify your table and field names for the SQL query

I am new to using OR statements.
Is my syntax above correct, its returning no results.
If I do just businessname, I have results.

You need to apply the condition to each field, as attached.
 $query = "select * from vendor where (businessname  like \"%$trimmed%\") OR (primarycontact  like \"%$trimmed%\") OR (estimatingcontact like \"%$trimmed%\") OR (ownerofficercontact like \"%$trimmed%\") order by businessname";
