Step 5: Refine Your Search:

You can refine your search in several ways:
- Search Scope: You can select a radio button that best suits your search needs, like "All words" or "Exact phrase." This helps in specifying how the search engine should interpret your query.
- Table Selection: If your database contains multiple tables, you can limit the search to specific tables by using the scrolling list provided.

Once you have entered your search criteria and made your refinements, click the "Go" button to start the search.

The next screen will display if there are any matches for your search. It will also indicate where these matches are located within the database.

Step 8: Browse the Results:

If there are matches, you can click on the "Browse" button at the end of the search results. This will allow you to view the matched record in detail.

Step 9: Make Changes (Optional):

If needed, you can make changes to the selected record within the phpMyAdmin interface.
