how to filter table when data is from MySQL data base connection. I tried the method shown in https://datatables.net/examples/api/multi_filter.html
but it is using only the first line for searching.

    but it is using only the first line for searching.

    Please describe this problem in more detail. Better would be a link to your page or a test case replicating the issue so we can help debug.

    Please find the above Screenshot for the code used.


    the below screen shot shows the result in the webpage.
    even though a number containing 86 is present in the 1st column's 3rd row the search is comparing only the 1st row and giving "No matching records found" message

    The information element at the bottom left has (filtered from 1 total entries). That suggests you initialized Datatables with one row of data then after initialization added more rows using the above script. Datatables doesn't know about these additional rows. See this FAQ for more details and options.

        while(rs.next())
        {
        %>   
        <tbody> 
    

    That's the issue. Move the tbody outside of the white loop. You should only have one tbody for a DataTable.

    You've still got the closing </tbody> inside the while loop, so I suspect the browser is inferring an extra opening <tbody> since at the moment it will be invalid HTML.
