ok well I was hoping for a more generic solution :)

actually re-reading what my original post stated...I was asking for something generic originally, in this case if you read what I originally said:

"what I would like to do is the search box checks for the value to "contain".....for example a customer enters into the search box: ARMCHAIR"

im ny oriignal above statement, I did say "for example a customer enters..." So I assumed it was obvious want I wanted was generic (just saying) :)

Slight issue, you told me to change the = to LIKE in my recordset...however the recordset in use is a straight "SELECT * FROM products so there is no place to put the LIKE clause.

here is the complete recordset (its using a case statement and the search by product name is at the bottom of this code block)

case "Search":

            $rsProducts = new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsProducts",$ecartdb,0);
            $rsProducts->setQuery("SELECT * FROM products");
            if (isset($_GET["Price"])) {
                $prices = explode(":",$_GET["Price"]);
            $productTypes = array();
                if (isset($_GET["Wood"])) {
                    $productTypes[] = "Wood";
                if (isset($_GET["Metal"])) {
                    $productTypes[] = "Metal";
                if (isset($_GET["Glass"])) {
                    $productTypes[] = "Glass";
                if (sizeof($productTypes) > 0) $rsProducts->addFilter("ProductType","=","s",$productTypes);
                if (isset($_GET["Product"])) {
                    $productName = $_GET["Product"];
