I am testing the code for a potential preference centre. I am passing the email address and subscriber key from an email and I am saving the data into a triggered send data extension which then sends an email with the confirmation of the selections.

All of this works; the only part of the code where I have issues with is the fact that in my triggered send data extension I see my record being added twice. Please see print screen attached & my code.

Any guidance how to correct this is appreciated:

var @key,@email,@ts, @tsDef, @ts_sub, @ts_attr, @tsctr, @ts_subkey, @ts_statusCode, @ts_statusMsg, @errorCode
set @key=QueryParameter("key")
set @email=QueryParameter("email")

if RequestParameter("submitted") == true then

        "SubscriberKey", RequestParameter("SubscriberKey"),
        "EmailAddress", RequestParameter("email"),
        "Preference1", RequestParameter("Preference1"),
        "Preference2", RequestParameter("Preference2"),
        "Newsletter", RequestParameter("Newsletter"),
        "Travel", RequestParameter("Travel")
SET @ts = CreateObject("TriggeredSend")
SET @tsDef = CreateObject("TriggeredSendDefinition")
SET @ts_subkey=QueryParameter("key")
SetObjectProperty(@tsDef, "CustomerKey", "TRIGGEREDSENDSSSS")
SetObjectProperty(@ts, "TriggeredSendDefinition", @tsDef)
SET @ts_sub = CreateObject("Subscriber")
SetObjectProperty(@ts_sub, "EmailAddress", QueryParameter("email"))
IF NOT EMPTY(@ts_subkey) THEN
    SetObjectProperty(@ts_sub, "SubscriberKey", @ts_subkey)
    SetObjectProperty(@ts_sub, "SubscriberKey", QueryParameter("email"))
AddObjectArrayItem(@ts, "Subscribers", @ts_sub)
SET @ts_statusCode = InvokeCreate(@ts, @ts_statusMsg, @errorCode)

IF @ts_statusCode != "OK" THEN
    RaiseError(@ts_statusMsg, 0, @ts_statusCode, @errorCode)

Triggering an email will automatically add a row to the Data Extension configured in the Triggered Send Definition. No need to add a row manually.

  • Right at @Giulietta, so like Adam said, you are getting two rows because the system is adding the row once, and your manual entry is adding it a second time. – garek007 Apr 24 '18 at 11:22
  • Thank you @Adam Spriggs &garek007. I was able to modify the script and now it works as it should – Giulietta May 2 '18 at 15:04
