"select * from timesheet where name like 'nam' && dat like '$datt'";

"like" clause is supposed to be used with jolly charcters "%"so queries should look like:

"... dat like '%$datt%'";


"...dat like 'datt%'";


"... dat like '%$datt'";

according to the part of search key string you want to matchactually I see you pass "%%" through html form but you'd better control it with php code.regards
