mysql_num_rows() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean

Hi,

I am writing this simple mysql code in my php program, but when i run it gives me an error message.

$query= "SELECT 'username' FROM 'users' WHERE 'username' LIKE '%search%'";
$query_run=mysql_query($query) or die('cannot execute '. mysql_error());


cannot execute You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''userasds' WHERE 'username' LIKE '%search%'' at line 1 "


Kindly tell me what is wrong in this code.
Thanks,
Taha
