Some of the options do affect price, some dont. I think what works so far is to have all the options into one table and let the customer click on the combination they like. Downfall is that you have to list all available option combinations but I guess its easier than to have multiple lists for different option groups. Everything is dynamic so for some products there could be 5 different option groups, and some wont have any etc.

I can't create the option list as static so I'll have to generate them dynamically based on the list that matches my current product ID number since we are on the details page.

Everything works ok on my site right now but like I said, my problem is this...

1. How do I add the customer's selection from the dropdown to the cart?

2. How can I add the description of that option as well?

I added the list within the same form as the add to cart button. Then i'm passing the main Product ID, Product Price, and product Weight from my Products table sucessfully to the cart and I can view them in the cart.

I just can't seem to pass the option price or the option description from the dynamic list. My dynamic list gets populated from my options table where its suppose to return the price increment as the "Value" and the option description as the "Labels". This list is then based off of the recordset for Product_Options that equals the Product ID selected from other pages... $_GET['Product_ID']
