    Default automatic email alerts

    I need to write a script that will allow people to register a search (will be stored in SQL server DB) and be automatically notified by email if anything that matches their search is added to the database.<BR>Any one any ideas how to go about this or where I could find an article on this.<BR>Thanks

    Default RE: automatic email alerts

    I suggest setting something up like error trapping.<BR>If you already know how to do a search then it is pretty simple.<BR><BR>You can use the cdonts function to send the email.<BR>You just have to set it so if there is a search result then some variable is set to true and then you send the email. If there is no value then it is false and you can either print something to the screen or pop up a message box or whatever.<BR><BR>Info on the Cdonts function is at the below url.<BR><BR><BR> .htm
