Project Description

Friends: I get a monthly Excel spreadsheet in a very clear format (i.e. name, email, addess, state, etc). I belong to a volunteer group where members want to contact the people on this mailing list based on where they live. In other words, if a mailing list member (MLM) lives in Florida, one of our Fl. members would contact him. Here is the format: ID Designator LAST_NAME FIRST_NAME FULL_NAME Rank PAID_THRU MEMBER_TYPE ADDRESS_1 ADDRESS_2 CITY STATE_PROVINCE ZIP MailCode EMAIL STATUS District Chapter WORK_PHONE HOME_PHONE COUNTRY I need a PHP/MySql solution that will allow me to upload the Excel, the xls will be parsed, and the program will use Sendmail to send out the appropriate mailing list information to the appropriate member. In other words: Mailing List Goes To: Bob Smith, NY, NY member covering NY Tom Jones, California member covering CA Sam Thomas, Florida member covering FL So the program would need an interface that allows me to setup to which of our members the MLMs from each state go. In other words: NY = [url removed, login to view] CT = [url removed, login to view] The program will have to be intelligent enough to send all the MLMs from a state to a member in one go: not numerous individual emails. If the program can operate via an email box that would be even better than a manual upload. In other words, if a person could email the excel to an email account and the process occurs without intervention. The database will track to whom and when each MLM was sent.
