i'm running a query as a job in SQL Server 2005.  this query will send an html report to customers and show all of their pending orders.

i have a field for customer number (CustomerNo)
each customer only has one email address.
but the customer may have several orders and they should receive only 1 email with all orders on it.

how do i do the iteration?
USE [Database]
GO
IF (OBJECT_ID('#tmpEmailStatus') IS NOT NULL)
DROP TABLE #tmpEmailStatus
 
CREATE TABLE #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo char(7) NOT NULL,
	CustomerNo char(7) NULL,
	EmailAddress varchar(50) NOT NULL,
	PackageNo varchar(4) NULL,
	TrackingID varchar(30) NULL,
	ShipToCity varchar(20) NULL,
	ShipToState char(2) NULL,
	ShipVia varchar(15) NULL,
	ItemCode varchar(15) NULL,
	QuantityShipped smallint NULL,
	QuantityOrderedRevised smallint NULL,
	FreightAmt decimal(12,5) NULL,
	PromiseDate datetime NULL
)
INSERT INTO #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
)
SELECT     SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
FROM         dbo.vEmailShippingStatus
GROUP BY SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
 
DECLARE @EmailRecipient VARCHAR(50);
SELECT @EmailRecipient = 'SELECT EmailAddress from dbo.vEmailShippingStatus';
 
DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;
 
SET @tableHTML =
    N'<H3>Order Status</H3>' +
		N'<div><H5>Execution Date: <font color="blue">' + CONVERT(NVARCHAR(30), getdate(), 113) + ' PST' + '</font></H5></div>'+ 
    N'<table border="1">' +
    N'<tr><th>SalesOrder</th>' +

    CAST ( ( SELECT td = SalesOrderNo,       '',

					td = ItemCode,			 '',
					td = QuantityShipped,	 '',
					td = QuantityOrderedRevised
              FROM #tmpEmailStatus
 
              FOR XML PATH('tr'), TYPE 
    ) AS NVARCHAR(MAX) ) +
    N'</table>' ;
 
drop table #tmpEmailStatus
 
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail @recipients=@EmailRecipient,

ok, i have a partial solution.  

i created a view that has a list of unique customer number, email address and use a CURSOR to iterate through it.

the only thing missing is how to SELECT only the records where CustomerNo is equal to the current record that the cursor is pointing to.

do i need a second cursor to point to the customer number or can i select the customer number column from the current cursor?
USE [Database]
GO
 
DECLARE @EmailRecipient VARCHAR(50);
DECLARE db_cursor CURSOR FOR
SELECT EmailAddress from dbo.ViewOfUniqueCustomerNumberEmailAddress;
OPEN db_cursor;
FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @EmailRecipient;
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS=0
BEGIN
IF (OBJECT_ID('#tmpEmailStatus') IS NOT NULL)
DROP TABLE #tmpEmailStatus
 
CREATE TABLE #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo char(7) NOT NULL,
	CustomerNo char(7) NULL,
	EmailAddress varchar(50) NOT NULL,
	PackageNo varchar(4) NULL,
	TrackingID varchar(30) NULL,
	ShipToCity varchar(20) NULL,
	ShipToState char(2) NULL,
	ShipVia varchar(15) NULL,
	ItemCode varchar(15) NULL,
	QuantityShipped smallint NULL,
	QuantityOrderedRevised smallint NULL,
	FreightAmt decimal(12,5) NULL,
	PromiseDate datetime NULL
)
INSERT INTO #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
)
SELECT     SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
FROM         dbo.vEmailShippingStatus
GROUP BY SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
 
 
 
DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;
 
SET @tableHTML =
    N'<H3>Order Status</H3>' +

ok, i got it.

i figured out how to use the current cursor, assign both the current customer number and email address to variables, and then send one email to each customer.
USE [Database]
GO
 
DECLARE @EmailRecipient VARCHAR(50);
DECLARE @Customer char(7);
DECLARE db_cursor CURSOR FOR
SELECT CustomerNo,EmailAddress from dbo.ViewOfUniqueCustomerNumberEmailAddress;
OPEN db_cursor;
FETCH NEXT FROM db_cursor INTO @Customer,@EmailRecipient;
 
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS=0
BEGIN
 
IF (OBJECT_ID('#tmpEmailStatus') IS NOT NULL)
DROP TABLE #tmpEmailStatus
 
CREATE TABLE #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo char(7) NOT NULL,
	CustomerNo char(7) NULL,
	EmailAddress varchar(50) NOT NULL,
	PackageNo varchar(4) NULL,
	TrackingID varchar(30) NULL,
	ShipToCity varchar(20) NULL,
	ShipToState char(2) NULL,
	ShipVia varchar(15) NULL,
	ItemCode varchar(15) NULL,
	QuantityShipped smallint NULL,
	QuantityOrderedRevised smallint NULL,
	FreightAmt decimal(12,5) NULL,
	PromiseDate datetime NULL
)
INSERT INTO #tmpEmailStatus(
	SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
)
SELECT     SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate

WHERE CustomerNo=@Customer
GROUP BY SalesOrderNo, CustomerNo, EmailAddress, PackageNo, TrackingID, ShipToCity, ShipToState,ShipVia,ItemCode,QuantityShipped,QuantityOrderedRevised,FreightAmt,PromiseDate
 
 
 
DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;
 
SET @tableHTML =
    N'<H3>Order Status</H3>' +
