Editing Powerstore cart.php with eCart

In order to add some features to my store that are not in PowerStore, I'm using eCart.

Using the eCart Checkout Wizard with cart.php open, I've set up the shipping, payments and now I'm on the orders window.

On Step 1 of 2, Store order summary in DB; Do I have to select all the values using the dynamic button for all of the tables and columns? If so, in the orders table, for the "OrderUserID" which value, from which field should I select?

The help file describes "OrderUserID" as:

In this example, the user has logged in and his unique user ID has been assigned to a session variable, UserID. The code for writing this session variable appropriate to the server model has been entered manually into the Value field and the binding updated.

So should I use the Session ID from the WAGlobals field? Or something else? I wish this just automatically populated, but that might just be a pipe dream.

After scanning through the forum, I came across a post by Ray:

  Basic use of payments standard is not a problem. Advanced customization of email and database order contents is where the difficulty comes in. They all can be managed through the eCart interface, but the steps and testing can be complex when custom email and database integration of orders are involved.  

That being said, do you think you could provide a list of all the values for each of the fields? I know it's a tall order, but I keep finding more columns that I can't ID from the DB and I can't complete this project without this. Or is there a resource somewhere which lists the values for columns? The eCart help file isn't helping me much

This is is one of the last things I need to do to complete this site, so I'd REALLY appreciate it if someone could reply with a helpful answer soon.
