Request Variable to sort Email sent in UE from a Registration Form

Request Variable to sort Email sent in UE from a Registration Form

I have a UE registration form that sends data to a database and also sends two emails, one to the administrators and one to the person registering.

When a person registers they select a member organisation from a drop down which submits the record number of that organisation to the database.

When the admins receive the email it shows the record number and not the unit name.

<?php echo((isset($_POST["unit"]))?$_POST["unit"]:""?>

How would I get the unit name to show instead?

I have tried linking the unit name

<?php echo $row_unit['unit_name']?>

But this just displays the first unit name in the database.

So how do I show the unit name that corresponds to the unit number submitted in the form?

If I do this

SELECT units.unit_name
FROM units
WHERE units.unit_id
How would I do

WHERE units.unit_id = Request Variable?

or whatever is required to show the name based on the session variable sent from the submitted form?

when creating the recordset, in simple view, set the filtering options to:
filter: unit_id =
Form variable $_POST["unit"]
