Mutl-Field Search PHP

I have a mult-field search and I'm trying to figure out how to post it and only search for fields that were selected.

<?php

$programid = "2036";

require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/includes/verifyaccess.php");
require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/includes/mainfunctions.php");
require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/includes/expFunctions.php");
require_once($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']."/includes/header.php");

//Make sure search for was submitted properly

if(isset($_POST['submit'])) 
	{
    //define the list of fields
    $fields = array('kdaccount', 'name', 'phone', 'town', 'state', 'sic', 'referral', 'kstatus', 'nlrep');
	
	//put conditionals in an array
    $conditions = array();
	
	foreach($fields as $field)
		{
        // if the field is set and not empty
        if(isset($_POST[$field]) && $_POST['field'] != '') 
			{
			// create a new condition while escaping the value inputed by the user (SQL Injection)
			$conditions[] = "`$field` LIKE '%" . mysql_real_escape_string($_POST[$field]) . "%'";
			}
		}

	// builds the query
	$query = "SELECT name, kdaccount FROM dw_names ";
		
	// if there are conditions defined
	if(count($conditions) > 0) 
		{
		// append the conditions
		$query .= "WHERE " . implode (' AND ', $conditions);
		}
	
	$result = mysql_query($query);
	echo $query . '<br />';
	}]

Your line 23 in the first file should be:
        if(isset($_POST[$field]) && !empty($_POST[$field]))

That did it.  What a dumb oversight!  Thanks!
