  5. CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `book` (
  6. `book_id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  7. `book_title` varchar(100) NOT NULL,
  8. `category_id` int(50) NOT NULL,
  9. `author` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  10. `author_2` varchar(100) NOT NULL,

  7. $status = $_POST['status'];
  8.  
  9. if ($status == '--All--') {
  10. $result= mysql_query("select * from book
  11. LEFT JOIN category ON book.category_id = category.category_id
  12. where (category.classname like '%$keyword%' or
  13. (book_barcode like '%$keyword%' or book_title like '%$keyword%'
  14. or author like '%$keyword%' or copyright_year like '%$keyword%'))
  15. order by book.book_id DESC ") or die (mysql_error());
  16. } elseif ($status == 'Title') {

  24. where author like '%$keyword%'
  25. order by book.book_id DESC ") or die (mysql_error());
  26. } elseif ($status == 'Category') {
  27. $result= mysql_query("select * from book
  28. LEFT JOIN category ON book.category_id = category.category_id

The code is great but there is no category table. Hence, it can't search for book
