Whats in a name? - Putting field from one recordset into emailbody

Whats in a name? - Putting field from one recordset into emailbody


I have created an email with the email body info coming from the recordset on a details.php page.

The emails sent comes from another recordset, which lists the contact details.

My question is....

How do I include the name from the second recordset in the email body?

i.e. if you send to tom, dick and harry, I want the single emails to read:

Dear Tom
Dear Dick
Dear Harry

I do hope this makes sense ! X

the second recordset should contain the email address and you should set Universal email up to loop through the that recordset to send the email.

then in the email template file, add the following code at line 1:

global $RecipArray;
global $RecipIndex;

Now in the body you can reference columns from the recordset using:

<?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["[yourColumnName]"]); ?>

where [yourColumnName] is the name of the column from the recordset you want included in the email

Hi Jason, thanks for your reply.

I tried what you said, but I can't get it to work. I have create a dreamweaver template for emails, which I then apply when creating my message through the "edit with DW" link in UA.

I put the first quote into the dwt template, and the second into the body where I want the names to appear.

When I open the email, the template replaces with waue html body. and the first snippet of code disappears. Am I doing this the wrong way?

If you want to see the files, then I will send them, but security would prefer them to be viewed by WA through a support ticket.

Many thanks
