   I am a newbie in ASP programming. I have this working web order program, now I want to email the customer the detail of their order right after the session is over.  I put all the items into a "bag" but I couldn't find a way to list of in the mail body text... array will return a type mismatch...
   Had anyone done this before and know the syntax and logic? Please help. Here is a part of the code

dim currTotal
for i = 1 to ItemCount
currTotal = currTotal + (bag(BagPrice, i) * bag(BagItemQuantity, i))

body = bag(BagProductId, i) & "   " & bag(BagProductName, i) & "  " & bag(BagItemQuantity, i) & "  " & FormatCurrency(bag(BagPrice, i)) & VbCrLf


Mailer.BodyText = body & VbCrLf & body2 & VbCrLf & "Total: " & FormatCurrency(currTotal) &_
VbCrLf & VbCrLf & "Thank you."

Once it emails, only the last item in the array shows....

Thanks in advance for your help,

body is reseted every time, you are using the last body assigned within the loop; just write body = body & bag(......)............. & VbCrLf
