R

rote

I'm getting the email address from an excel sheet.
But i need to send the email to multiple people
When printing the below i get
(e-mail address removed);[email protected];;

But i want (e-mail address removed);[email protected];

i don't need the extra semicolon

Thanks

code below
------

while (oledr.Read())

{

smail = oledr[0].ToString() + ";" + "<br>";



//smail += oledr[0].ToString() & ";";

//mail.To.Add(smail);

//this.Label1.Text = smail;

Response.Write(smail);

}

Well, here you have a work around (it could be better coded, but this will
work for you), just add the semicolon before and in the first ocurrence don't
do the concat:

bool firstTime = true;

while (oledr.Read())
{
smail ="";
if(!firstTime) smail = ";"
smail += oledr[0].ToString();
}

This code will always produce only the last email. It can be a bit corrected
as:

smail ="";
while (oledr.Read())
{
if(smail.Length > 0) smail += ";"
smail += oledr[0].ToString();
}

Thanks but
Tried what you suggested like this
bool firstTime = true;

while (oledr.Read())

{

string smail;

smail = "";

if (!firstTime)smail = ";";

//smail = oledr[0].ToString();

smail += oledr[0].ToString();


//mail.To.Add(smail);

Response.Write(smail);

}

But didn't solve the problem

Actually got it to work.
This is very confusing between System.Web.Mail and System.Net.
I remembered when using System.Web.Mail i had to include a semi colon or
comma
But it seems System.Net. doesn't need it .
Does it add it automatically i need to get thhis right.
Thanks
