Product Options with eCart-Value for Color in cart is ProductOptionID not OptionName

Good Afternoon,

I've just finished setting up Product Options with eCart and was hoping for some help fixing something. I've searched through the threads, but unfortunately what I attempted from them did not work. Thanks in advance for any help you might provide - its is very much appreciated.

1) I'm using the standard database and an almost stock implementation - Size and Color Options
2) I was able to get Price & Color increment working by added a record set for rsColorLookup and adjusting the code a bit.
3) On my product details page both drop downs look and work fine, but when I get to the cart the value for color is the 'ProductOptionID' rather than 'OptionName'
4) I found a thread that I think indicated to do the following -> Open Product Details pages / Double Click eCart Add From Recordset / select Bindings / select color / uncheck 'updatable'.

When I do this and select 'ok' my list/menu item for 'color' disappears. Is there a work around directly in the code? Or am I missing something from that tread on how to do this properly?

Thanks again - I've attached my product detail page.
