The getting started guide has the following note
[quote]If you intend to create Add to cart buttons that reference your products in a database, you will need to have a Recordset already created on the page you are adding the button to. If this is a product results or product details page created by DataAssist, this will already have been created for you.[/code]
just before the instructions for adding the add to cart button.
If you do not have a product database set up, then you can use static add to cart buttons by checking the option for Add Static Item To Cart. Strep 5 of the instructions of adding the add to cart button says the following:
Add static item to cart: With a static Add to cart button, you will need to specify the details for the product within the Bindings tab of this interface.
Look up item ID from recordset: If you are storing your products in a database (recommended), you will want to select this option so that you can retrieve product prices, descriptions, weight, etc., from the database dynamically.
if you dont have a product database already set up, you can select to use static add to cart buttons.
if you would like to use Dynamic add to cart buttons, you will need a product database.
