I have made a webpage using Dreamweaver cs4. Its .php and connected to a database (mamp). The problem I have is I am trying to create a search section for the data from my database. I have been looking for tutorials on this but cant seem to find what I want.

If I type 'search for my dynamic data' or something similar its not getting any good results.

I want to either search for a name (from the database) or select a county and a category and get the results. Is there a particular name for this so that I can find a tutorial? I just keep drawing a blank at what it would be called to do this, other than search for dynamic data.
