How can I make this query work?

Recommended Posts

So I have made a query to retrieve some results in the database we made for the project but it only returns results when I only search for the first name, it doesn't retrieve results when I search for a last name or a complete name.


Disclaimer: I am a novice in PHP and Mysql


Here is the query:

 "SELECT * FROM tblparents WHERE strFirstName LIKE '%{$strSearchMe}%' OR strLastName LIKE '%{$strSearchMe}%'"

The query certainly seems reasonable. What is the query after inserting the values? What if you run it manually?
