Use One Form Field To Search Two Database Tables

I have search and results pages that have one form field for the search "courseDescription" but I want to search two tables in the database "courseDescription" and "courseMetaTags". I've tried to follow instructions I found in the forum but it didn't work.
I've attached the file

It looks like it is using $_POST but your form is using method="get"

Try updating line 21 from:

$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr1,"".((isset($_POST["courseDescription"]))?$_POST["courseDescription"]:"") ."","OR","Includes","%20AND%20","%20OR%20","%22","%22",0);


$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr1,"".((isset($_GET["courseDescription"]))?$_GET["courseDescription"]:"") ."","OR","Includes","%20AND%20","%20OR%20","%22","%22",0);
