If you send some words separated with OR like : John OR Mike and then in your report page receive this value and comparison type should be CONTAINS

You need to separate your search and report in two page: https://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips-and-articles/tech-parameters/how-to-separate-search-page-and-results-page-into-two-different-webpages/

Then in the search page add a JS to the Footer of the page to replace the spaces you have on search field with OR.

function rep(){
var str= document.getElementById('cbParamVirtual1').value;

document.getElementById('cbParamVirtual1').value =str.replace (/ /g, ' OR ');

document.getElementById('Submit').onmouseover = rep;


Virtual 1 if the virtual field you added to your search page and you need to check the value to the next page on submit.
