Changing CFMAIL parameter with CFIF statement in Coldfusion

Hi,

  I have CFM page where I send online order confirmation email to recipients using CFMAIL   .When the salesperson completes the order, then the email confirmation goes to the person who ordered it and the person who is designated to process the order. But if the salesperson ID is 13 or 12, then it goes to one more person  using BCC (ie.  BCC="user@ABC.com").  In CFMAIL, there is a table which shows the order informaiton.
But the contents of the table is the same regardless of saleperon's ID. The only difference is BCC in CFMAIL.
I like to be able to keep just one <TABLE> ... </TABLE> using CFIF ... CFELSE. Unfortunately I have to maintain two <TABLE> ... </TABLE>. If there is an update in <TABLE> ... </TABLE>, then I have to make the same change in two separate TABLEs. How can I combine these two TABLEs into one?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<CFIF "#session.LoginID#" IS '13' or "#session.LoginID#" IS '12'>
    <CFMAIL                  
      FROM="order@ABC.com"

        CC="#Form.Processor#"
        BCC="user@ABC.com"
      SUBJECT="*#ORDERTYPE#* New Bag Order Notification for Order No:#OrderNumber.LastRecord#" TYPE="HTML">

do this instead
<cfset bcc = "">
<CFIF "#session.LoginID#" IS '13' or "#session.LoginID#" IS '12'>
<cfset bcc = "user@ABC.com">
</cfif>
 <CFMAIL                  
      FROM="order@ABC.com"
      TO="#session.Email#"
        CC="#Form.Processor#"
        BCC="#bcc#"
      SUBJECT="*#ORDERTYPE#* New Bag Order Notification for Order No:#OrderNumber.LastRecord#" TYPE="HTML">

I agree with lester, however, I have to comment on the unnecessary quotes and #s..

<CFIF "#session.LoginID#" IS '13' or "#session.LoginID#" IS '12'>

Could be...

<CFIF session.LoginID  eq 13  or session.LoginID  eq 12>  

         ("eq" and "is" are interchangeable; often people use eq for numbers and "is" for strings as a kind of standard, whichever you prefer will work)

or check a list...

<CFIF listFInd("12,13", session.LoginID)>

In <CFIF listFInd("12,13", session.LoginID)> , you removed # signs around Session.LoginID.
Is that normal?

Yes, absolutely.  You don't need #s when inside of a CF statement including CFSET, CFIF, CFFUNCTION calls, and all the rest.    The #s are used to identify a CF variable when between CFOUTPUT statements..
