I am trying to send data from a database displayed with a form via an email. The database connection is to an MSAccess database.

default.asp - user selects a location and is redirected to
EligibleOrNot.asp. Based on a check in the database, the use is either redirected to:

NotEligible.asp (message displayed with guidelines) OR

Eligible.asp. In addition to the form fields, the user is given some information stored in the database (tblWeb.SSLink) and (tblStaffDirectory.SDFName, tblStaffDirectory.SDLName, tblStaffDirectory.SDEmail). Once the form is complete, the user clicks the submit button. The form data is transferred to Eligible2.asp. The form data is sent to a database AND sent via an email. I have this functioning correctly.

I now need to send the database data (tblStaffDirectory.SDFName, tblStaffDirectory.SDLName, tblStaffDirectory.SDEmail) included in the email.
Eligible.txt
Eligible2.txt

It looks like you are using the variable ChartID on Eligible.  Just put that as a hidden field in the form (or cookie or session or url).  Then on Eligible2, add back the recordset.
sql = "SELECT tblStaffDirectory.SDLName, tblStaffDirectory.SDFName, " & _
		"tblStaffDirectory.VRContact, tblStaffDirectory.VRAlternate, tblStaffDirectory.SDEmail " & _
		"FROM tblStaffDirectory WHERE ChartID=" & ChartID & ";"

Open in new window

Or you can add the those fields on the Eligible form and read them on Eligible2.  

Now you have multiple ways to get the data to your email script.
