Hi All,

I am using php mailer to add attachment to email.

I am not able to get attachment working when I call file name from database. But works if I manually add in. For example

This works

$mail->addAttachment("CAUploads\\emailup\\201606011654390.Lighthouse.jpg");
$mail->addAttachment("CAUploads/emailup/201606011654390.Lighthouse.jpg");

This does not work

$up11 = CCDLookUp("up1", "tbl_reminders", "remind_id=".
$DBcamain->ToSQL($RecField, ccsText), $DBcamain);

$path = "CAUploads\\emailup\\".$up11;
$path1 = "CAUploads/emailup/".$up11;

$mail->addAttachment($path);
$mail->addAttachment($path1);

Any ideas why? I have printed $up11 and gives file name e.g.201606011654390.Lighthouse.jpg

@beefcake - at first glance it appears fine.

I would suggest checking the $path and $path1 is returning, not just $up11, and perhaps try single quotes instead of double quotes when concatenating them. PHP *might* by escaping something and getting the wrong file path.

See: http://php.net/manual/en/language.types.string.php

Cheers

Eric

Thanks Eric.

I worked out the code was in fact fine but the file only gets picked up from the temporary upload folder! e.g. CAUploads/tmpup.

The email code is part of a records after insert event so I would expect the file transfer from temp to live to have already occurred.
