Questions regarding complex searching

I am pretty new to Ruby on Rails, but have been running into difficulty
with getting search to do what I want.

What I plan to do is to have, say, 10 fields in a form with a submit
button. The user can select which ones they fill out, and when they
click submit the database is searched appropriatly. That is, if the
name and state fields were both filled it, a page would display entries
that had that name who also had the state.

Please let me know if there is a this search ‘utitlity’ out there for
RoR. Thanks.

You might also consider the acts_as_ferret plugin. I’ve just set this up
recently to do something similar to what you’re suggesting, and have
found it to be very useful.

The people at http://www.ruby-forum.com/forum/5 have also been very
helpful.
