    combining input text filed and pulldown as search field please help !!

    Hello can someone help me with this problem that I am having. I want to put a text field where the user type in and a pull down drop box where they select either first name or last name. I have an .asp code to work already with the text field but I can't combine a text field and drop down box to work. I currently have a two working text box and I want to combine one text box with the drop down with 2 fields for first name and last name.
    This is what I have:

    <form action="firstname.asp" method="get">
    <input name="search" value="" size="25" />
    <input type="submit" value="Search"/>

    <form action="lastname.asp" method="get">
    <input name="search" value="" size="25" />
    <input type="submit" value="Search"/>

    Thank you omarr226 for your reply..I thought there's no help for this....Well let me explain what I want to do...I have an access database of my musics collection. I want to setup a search webpage with 1 text box where I can type in anything. And a drop/pull down box for me to specify if I want to search by artist name, song title, or disc number. If I don't type anything in the text box and click submit..then just do nothing. Here's my working asp code:

    Dim myWhere
    Dim strURL
    Dim cnnSearch
    Dim rstSearch
    Dim strDBPath
    Dim strSQL
    Dim strSearch
    Dim strSort
    Dim objField ' Used for table display

    strURL = Request.ServerVariables("URL")

    strSearch = Request.QueryString("search")

    strSort = Request.QueryString("strSort")

    If strSearch <> "" Then

    strDBPath = Server.MapPath("/anhlunnhaque/db/karaoke_full.mdb")

    Set cnnSearch = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

    cnnSearch.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strDBPath & ";"

    Select Case strSort
    Case "mfcode"
    myWhere = "mfcode,track"
    Case "track"
    myWhere = "track,song"
    Case "song"
    myWhere = "song"
    Case Else
    myWhere = "artist"
    End Select

    strSQL = "SELECT mfcode,track,song,artist " _
    & "FROM AllEng100705 " _
    & "WHERE mfcode LIKE '%" & Replace(strSearch, "'", "''") & "%' " _
    & "ORDER BY " & myWhere &""

    Set rstSearch = cnnSearch.Execute(strSQL)

    <center><table border="1" bordercolor="#0000FF">
    <body vlink="#FF0000" alink="#FF0000">
    <% strSearch = Server.URLEncode(strSearch) ' do NOT do this BEFORE this point! %>
    <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><a href="emfc.asp?search=<%=strSearch%>&strSort=mfcode"><font color = "#FF0000">Disc Code</a></font color></th>
    <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><a href="emfc.asp?search=<%=strSearch%>&strSort=track"><font color = "#FF0000">Track Number</a></font color></th>
    <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><a href="emfc.asp?search=<%=strSearch%>&strSort=song"><font color = "#FF0000">Song Title</a></font color></th>
    <th bgcolor="#CCCCCC"><a href="emfc.asp?search=<%=strSearch%>&strSort=artist"><font color = "#FF0000">Artist Name</a></font color></th>

    blnColor = False
    Do While Not rstSearch.EOF
    Response.Write vbTab & "<tr>" & vbCrLf
    For Each objField in rstSearch.Fields
    Response.Write vbTab & vbTab & "<td bgcolor="""

    If blnColor Then
    Response.Write "#CCCCFF" ' Light blueish
    Response.Write "#FFFFFF" ' White
    End If

    Response.Write """>" & Trim(objField.Value) & "</td>" & vbCrLf
    Next 'objField
    Response.Write vbTab & "</tr>" & vbCrLf

    blnColor = Not blnColor


    Set rstSearch = Nothing
    Set cnnSearch = Nothing
    End If


    P.S. On the same note: How would I do or create links to my searched resutls so that when I click on the artist name..It'll pull up all the songs by that artist. ?? For example. I type in the song title "Gold Digger". The results will display like this:

    Disc Number: Song Title: Artist: Track:
    CD1 Gold Digger Kayne West, Jamie Fox 1

    I want the text "Kayne West, Jamie Fox" to be a link so that if I click on Kayne West...it'll refreshh and pulled all the songs by him. Like wise for Jamie Fox...if I click on it..it'll refresh and pull all the songs by Jamie Fox.

    Please please help me...

    Thank you so much !!!!!
