More of a mysql question - PHP Development

$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM dept WHERE notes LIKE '%$searchstring%'",$db); The above is a part of a search program that I've written in PHP to search the contents of a mysql DB. In the example, I search through a filed named 'notes', however, I'd like to be able to search every field in the DB, not just notes... any pointers on how to do this? I've tried replacing the field name with *, but that doesn't work. Thanks!...
