I'm assuming that $TEXTBOXVALUE has been sanitized - otherwise either sanitize it or use a prepared statement (DW Tutorial: Common Issues with MySQL and PHP )

If you are sending the search form via traditional methods (not Ajax) - use GET not POST for simple retrievals, so you have the textbox value in $_GET['txtsearch'].
