checkout wizard / Shipping UPS integration

checkout wizard / Shipping UPS integration

After completing the checkout wizard and going through a checkout trial-run, I go directly into the shipping_failure.php with the following message (upon completing the checkout.php shipping/billing info):

Shipping Quote Failed
We're sorry
S is not a valid unit of measurement for weight for this shipment

I have a PayPal Standard account and a UPS account with a XML access key. Everything seemed to go well with filling out the checkout wizard info. I am not sure where to go from here. I do not know where UPS is picking up a "S" value for weight or how to fix this error. I have tried several things including the checkout set-up several times. Other than obtaining an account and a XML access key from UPS, do I need anything else for shipping set-up? The steps in the checkout wizard ask for product L x W x H attributes, but not directly for the product weight, but I know that the item weights are coming in accurately in other fields. I am attaching the WA_eCart_UPS_PHP.php file.

Much appreciation for your any help/direction on this.
