concat firstname and lastname in child table

Hi Eric,

that bind form data was what I was missing all along!!!

However I still have one issue. This is how my (child) recordset looks on page 1

  SELECT people.personID, people.personCatID,, CONCAT(firstname, ' ' ,lastname) AS fullname
FROM people  

When I create my target list and click submit, the ID's are passed to page2. I am not sure if I have done the right thing but I have created a hidden field on page2 and vound the target list to this hidden field.

On page2 I created a new recordset SELECT * FROM people (child table). I applied DA search and set the column to personID (primary key) and selected the target list.

Now I am unto the final step applying universal email which has got me stumped. the "TO TAB" is my problem. I have the option to use a value or a recordset loop. If I use a value and click the lightening bolt, I am not sure what to bind. If I use a recordset loop and simply select my people table (child table) and the email field, I think this will send an email to everyone in that table and not just my target list?

Finally if I would like to have each target list recipients name in each email to make it more personal, is that possible? What would I need to do this?

The reason why this is so confusing to me is because the targetlist only pulls the value not the label. The value would be the personID (child). When i configure Da search I am also only pulling the personid in the colums section. There has been no provision to pull the email field as of yet.
