I've created my first search form and it seems everything is working pretty well. However, since I am very novice in scripting in general, I'm having one problem that I can't seem to unearth an answer to. Perhaps someone could easily offer the answer:
my query asks to select a 2 char state code or a 5 digit zip code in order to obtain results desired. In testing, if I enter a state code, it brings up only the state requested. However, when I enter a zipcode, I get the wrong results. I'm sure its the "LIKE" that is throwing this off. Here is the query portion of the script:
$result = mysql_query ("SELECT * FROM fish_dealers
WHERE Zip = ´$Zip%´
OR State LIKE ´$State%´
Can anyone give me a clue?
