[Zope-DB] MySQL Database Search in Zope

This is what I did to get my search interface form working. I first
created a search query such as this one that searches for user
information based on either the name of the user or it searches all
users in a given office. I built it by using a Z SQL Method:

Select * from users
 Where ( (<dtml-sqltest name="username" type="string"> OR
         <dtml-sqltest name="useroffice" type="string">))

Then, in the same folder that I created the Z SQL Method I selected the
Z Search Interface from the Drop Down Menu. Finally, you need to insert
the necessary content in the fields. Such as, highlight the query you
are using in the menu options where it states, "Select one or more
searchable objects". In my case, I highlighted 'SearchUsers'. Then give
insert a name for the report id and search input id (any name you want).
At the bottom I wanted to generate Page templates so I selected this
option. And that's it. All Done.

Hope This Helps,

Your request is not very clear.

What is the precise problem?

It is easy to add a search interface in Zope. First of all you create a 
ZSQL method with your query and then you add a ZSQL Search Wizard which 
will automatically create a form which will call the ZSQL and a results
