customer recordset used to update multiple orders...need to work out how to send email to all those customers...

Hi. ok well after Ray helping me solve how to update multiple orders using checkboxes...I was wondering how I could also send out order updates to the corresponding emails that belong to the orders I had updated...

The custom code for the record uses an array implode...


if (isset($_POST["Save"])) {
$query_rsOrderDispatched "UPDATE orders SET OrderProcess = '".$_POST["order-update"]."' WHERE OrderID IN (".implode(", ",$_POST["order-reference"]).")";

Now is it a case of still using the Universal Email server behaviour and using the option:RecordSet Loop from the "To Settings" option in the Universal Email and then selecting my recordset for rsOrderDispatched? Or would it require a completely customised email sending function?

Im guessing that may not work as I already have another recordset called rsOrderDispatched has no filters since its used to display a record count (ok just thought that's a sloppy coding method using 2 recordsets the same name)

mysql_select_db($database_dinkydb, $dinkydb);
$query_rsOrderDispatched = "SELECT * FROM orders WHERE OrderProcess = 'Order Dispatched'";
$rsOrderDispatched = mysql_query($query_rsOrderDispatched, $dinkydb) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsOrderDispatched = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsOrderDispatched);
$totalRows_rsOrderDispatched = mysql_num_rows($rsOrderDispatched);
