if search button is click it would generate an error...


please help..thanks...

You can try

$clean_string = str_replace("'","",$search_string);

parameter 1, is what you are searching for, param 2 is what to replace it with, (in this case replace a single ' with nothing) and param 3 is the string you are searching through.

try this

$string = addslashes($seachKeyWord);
