Default php search engine

hi all,

i am having some problem with my search engine which i couldn't solve. whenever i keyed in a key word to search from my database but it just couldn't get the result(s) and just die off.

the final output for my result is:

couldn't execute query

when my code looks like this:

mysql_connect("localhost","pbl_b","abtV7QKL5aRNI") ;



$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM search WHERE Desc LIKE '%$search%'") or die("couldn't execute query");

        $title = $r['Title'];
        $desc = $r['Desc'];
        $link = $r['Link'];



<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<p align ="Center"> The Keywords is <strong><? $_POST['SearchEngine'] ?> </strong>.</p></p>
<tr><td>&nbsp;</td><td><table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">

                 <? echo "$_POST[Title] ";?> <br>
                 <? echo "$_POST[Desc]"; ?><br>
                 <? echo "$_POST[Link]"; ?><br>


all the naming for the fields are corrent from the html and the database. please tell me where the problem lies.
