    You should be able to search by fields in the table. First off create a form that will allow searching. Make sure you use "$_POST[query]" for the value and the name should be "query". Then when you are making the output, use this:

    if ($_POST[query])
    $qStr = "(field name LIKE '%$_POST[query]%')";

    Obviously you can add more field names to it for each part you want it to seach with. Then use this for grabbing the information:

    $result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table name WHERE $qStr") or die ("Invalid query: SELECT");

    If you need this explained more, feel free to ask.
