sp_send_dbmail with query specific to each recipient

I have the script working to send an email to each recipient. I need to include data that is specific to each recipient though.

How do I do this? I'd like to include it in the body or subject or anywhere at this point. It's not a lot of data, just one field in the table that is related to that person.

The 'REF' in the script below is the field.

*******************
declare Maillist cursor
for select EMAIL FROM dbo.test
      OPEN Maillist    
FETCH FROM Maillist into @emailAddress

WHILE NOT (@@fetch_status=-1)    
 BEGIN  
   begin
set nocount on
USE [Goldmine] SELECT EMAIL, REF FROM  dbo.test
if @@ROWCOUNT >0
begin
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
*************

sp_send_dbmail accepts all kinds of parms that will allow you to customize the email.

Yes, I've seen that many times. I'm not sure how to show the specific data per recipient. There might be up to 10 emails each having a different Quote.

Example:

Dear Mr. Jones,
Your "quote # 12345" is about to expire in 15 days.

Thank you,
XXXX

open a cursor on "SELECT EMAIL, REF FROM  dbo.test" loop through executing sp_send_dbmail loading the parms from each read until all the emails are sent

I did get it to work. All I had to do is declare and  add the @quoteref column after the @emailaddress

--FETCH FROM Maillist into @emailAddress, @quoteref

In both FETCH lines.

Took me a while but I figured it out.

Thanks..!
