In that case you can do something like this:
$s_where = '';
foreach (array('name', 'lastname', 'nickname') as $e)
$s_where .= (!empty($s_where) ? ' AND ' : '' ) . (!empty($_REQUEST[$e]) ?
"$e='$_REQUEST[$e]'" : '' );
$result = mysql_query("SELECT id, name , lastname , m_date from users " . (!empty($s_where) ?
" WHERE " . $s_where : '' ))
thanks .. but my question is not for isset... i m thinking consider that i
have 10 search fields... if i have to do a combination then i need a day to
right the various SQL statements

Is there a way to condition your search:
-I have a form for four text boxes for search my Mysql...
-I don't want to write 4 conditions and for SQL statements incase he
decided not to search with all keywords (fields)
- I have by example : name, lastname , nickname and phone form...
I need a way to select my records even one or more field were null
(searching only on of the above)
because the following SQL will generate null result
$sql = mysql_query("SELECT id, name , lastname , m_date from users where
name like binary '%$name%' and lastname like binary '%$lastname%' and
nickname like binary '%$nickname%' and m_date= YEAR('$m_date') order
id ASC ") or die(mysql_error());
Thanks in advanced
Use isset to test whether the POST values are set and only include in the
query if there is a value.
