Did you include st=db in your search parameters ?

For two different SQL tables I've a working example:

<form action="[process]" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="mv_session_id" value="[data session id]">
<input type="hidden" name="mv_todo" value="search">
<input type="hidden" name="st" value="db">
<input type="hidden" name="fi" value="anymem">
<input type="hidden" name="fi" value="retire">
<input type="hidden" name="sf" value="lname">
<input type="hidden" name="rf" value="idf,lname,fname">
<input type="hidden" name="tf" value="lname,fname">
<input type="hidden" name="su" value="1">
<input name="se" value="">
<input type="submit" value="Search">
