I have a email script that sends out information from the mysql database with the following code, but it only sends out one name and ID, but in the email it should send all 20 names and IDs. My question how can I get this fix and working right. Thanks for any help.

//retreive questions from database and put into question box
$query2 = "SELECT `studentID`,`studentName` FROM `quiz1question`";

$question2 = mysql_query($query2);
 while($row = mysql_fetch_array($question2)){

$studentName = $row['studentName'];
$studentID = $row['studentID'];

$msg .= '<p>Student Name: '.$studentName.' or Student ID: '.$studentID.'</p>';


// ------------------------------------------------------------

$to = "cc-wp@hotmail.com";

$subject = "CT-80 Quiz/Test Results";

$from = "akamerc@hotmail.com";

$headers ="From: $from\n";

$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\n";

$headers .= "Content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1 \n";

if(mail($to,$subject,$msg,$headers)) {

    echo "success";

    exit();

} else {       

    echo "failed";

    exit();

}
?>

<?php } ?>

exit terminates the script, so the while loop just stops after the first mail.

Thanks for the reply what I am trying to do is this in the email. Database has 20 name or whatever. In the email should look like this with the following info:

  1. **
  2. **
  3. **

and so on. It just shows 1.** and thats it. when I take out exit(); it sends me mass emails.

Then mail should be outside of the loop, and you build the body text inside the loop.

Thanks for the help again and also it works. Here's the result.

//retreive questions from database and put into question box
$query2 = "SELECT * FROM `quiz1question` `student`";

$question2 = mysql_query($query2);
 while($row = mysql_fetch_array($question2)){

$id = $row['id'];
$question = $row['question'];
$quizAnswer = $row['quizAnswer'];
$aee = $row['aee'];
$bee = $row['bee'];
$cee = $row['cee'];
$dee = $row['dee'];
$studentName = $row['studentName'];
$studentID = $row['studentID'];

$msg .= 'Student Name: '.$studentName.' <br />Student ID: '.$studentID.' <br />'.$id.' '.$question.' <br />A. '.$aee.'&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />B. '.$bee.'&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />C. '.$cee.'&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br />D. '.$dee.'<br />Your Answer:<br />
Correct Answer: '.$quizAnswer.'<br /><br />';

D. cccc
Your Answer:
Correct Answer: cccc

Only output it the first in the loop. Use a counter and an if statement.

Sorry but I am lost now. How would I write a if statement and where would I put it.

The if statement would be inside the loop, around the output of the student information.

I think this looks wrong.

if ( $studentName == "studentName" )
   {
echo "Student Name: '$studentName'";
$msg .= ''.$id.'.  '.$question.' <br />A. '.$aee.'        <br />B. '.$bee.'    <br />C. '.$cee.'            <br />D. '.$dee.'<br />Your Answer:<br />
Correct Answer: '.$quizAnswer.'<br /><br />';
 }
