<?

echo "<h2>Results</h2><p>"; 

//If they did not enter a search term we give them an error 
if ($find == "") 
{ 
echo "<p>You forgot to enter a search term"; 
exit; 
} 

// Otherwise we connect to our Database 
mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "") or die(mysql_error()); 
mysql_select_db("test") or die(mysql_error()); 

// We preform a bit of filtering 
$find = strtoupper($find); 
$find = strip_tags($find); 
$find = trim ($find); 

//Now we search for our search term, in the field the user specified 
$data = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users WHERE '$field' LIKE '%$find%'"); 

//And we display the results 
while($result = mysql_fetch_array( $data ))
