Universal Email Recordset Loop with dynamic fields

Universal Email Recordset Loop with dynamic fields

I am using the batch feature in Universal Email with the Recordset Loop. I would like to accomplish two objectives with this batch:

(1) Use dynamic fields from my database in the email message
(2) Pass a few extra fields to the email log.

My email log works perfectly with these objectives, thanks to your help, provided that I just send one email, not using the batch feature. I successfully use dynamic fields in the email and pass values to some new fields of the email log that I have set up in the database using hidden fields in the email form. When I use the batch feature, the emails rotate, and they are sent out to recipients, but the content of the email does not change dynamically and the email log field that I have created are not updated. Each email and log record reflects the content of the first record in the database from which I am sending the emails. Other than the email address, the array of dynamic data is not being passed to each email and log record. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Jason for this thread #17869 or Ray Bourdin. I can't get it to work yet. So if I wanted to add three variables to the recordset loop ("variable1", "variable2" and "variable3" ) from my recordset named "test", the same recordset from which my email loop is sourced, how would I change Ray Bourdin's code below. Thanks.

<?php
global $RecipArray;
global $RecipIndex;
?>

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

  So if I wanted to add three variables to the recordset loop  



to add variables to the recordset, you would need to edit the recordset, how should these variables effect the results of the recordset?

I have already changed and defined the recordset "test" to include the variables (UserID, UserFirstName, and UserLastName) and I have tested that I am in fact returning these variables from the recordset. It seems that I am not coding and defining these variables globally, which was why I was asking how Ray's coding should be changed. I am trying to accomplish two objectives: (1) pass these variables to the WA email log for each record in the loop, and (2) use these as dynamic variables in the email sent to each UserEmail recipient in the loop. So I am attempting to reference these variables both in the email body and the Email Log Bindings of Universal Email. I have not been successful in these objectives. Thanks for responding.

your question was a little confusing in the way it was worded.

to add those recordset columns to the email, the code:
<?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["[yourColumnName]"]); ?>

should be:
UserID: <?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["UserID"]); ?>
UserFirstName: <?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["UserFirstName"]); ?>
UserLastName: <?php echo($RecipArray[$RecipIndex][0]["UserLastName"]); ?>
