hi friends,

I want a query for search value taking multiple columns like any matrimonial site.

I'm using this query:
$query_for_result=mysql_query("select * from matri_user_info where (gender='$gender') and (age between $agemin and $agemax) and (height between $hmin and $hmax) and (religion='$religion') and (marital_status='$marital_status') and (city ='$city') and (state='$state') and (country='$country');");

But it show 0 result when some columns left blank because i take and and it will search by taking every variable value and if i take OR then it show any value even matched by any columns.

So i just want if user select even one the it show result according that if 2 then according that and so on.

If any of you have any idea then pls let me know.

Change your where condition:
where (gender='$gender') and (age between $agemin and $agemax)
where ($gender IS null OR gender='$gender') and ($agemin IS null OR $agemax IS null OR age between $agemin and $agemax)
And so on
