We need to send email job confirmations to staff who work in a group on the same job. These emails should include the name and phone numbers of the other staff on the same job.

With the help of lesouef I formalated a script to send an email to a single staff member in the group containing details of all the staff, including their own name. These scripts appear at the top of the script table of the dtatabe attached.

Tocarcar helped me go one step further with a script that sends an email to all staff in the group by loop, omitting the details of the person the email is directed to. This is the first script in the table. I commissioned this solution but have run into a problem when the same staff member is employed on several Group Jobs. In this case the email confirms the wrong job details. I guess this is \because the email loop refers to the Staff table rather than the Jobs table, so it can't reference the Group Job Number.

I am happy to put this up for more points since Tocarcar spent so much time on it before. Mayhbe he can come up with the final solution, but all help appreciated.

With this problem solved I will then post another question requesting a solution that sends a single email confirmation to a Staff member in a Group job, omitting their own details.

Thanks to all! SassyEE.fp7
