excluding certain products from delivery calculation

I have narrowed it down to these in my recordset:

$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s", "".$eCart->DisplayInfo("TotalWeight") ."", "-1"); //colname2
$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s", "".$eCart->DisplayInfo("TotalSize") ."", "-1"); //colname3

I should have written it with "TotalColumn" like:

$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s", "".$eCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight") ."", "-1"); //colname2
$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s", "".$eCart->TotalColumn("TotalSize") ."", "-1"); //colname3

Update: Hmm still not working as expected as I needed to add it some code so that it takes into account if a product is flagged for "ProductFreeDelivery" and "ProductCollectionOnly" the calculation of the totalweight and totalsize seem to be ok. but its not calculating the correct delivery cost.

What I did was in the eCartObject Shipping Tab was add these rules:
If Session variable exists: EstimatedDeliveryCost
AND SubTotal of ProductFreeDelivery == 1
AND SubTotal of ProductCollection == 1
Create a flat rate shipping of <?php echo $_SESSION['EstimatedDeliveryCost']; ?>

Could it be my columns in eCart?
TotalWeight = [Weight] * [Quantity] * [ProductCollectionOnly] * [ProductFreeDelivery]
TotalSize = ([Width] * [Height] * [Depth]) * [Quantity] * [ProductCollectionOnly] * [ProductFreeDelivery]

I have attached 2 files in case you can see the problem in there?

When I added some products in the basket - I chose 1 produce that I know should be excluded in the delivery cost (so the results were correct in showing me totalweight and totalsize)
And then I added multiple quantities of a product that I know should be included in the delivery calculation.

Was I correct in putting the conditions of the 2 columns in my shipping rules?
I was thinking that in the shipping rules I should have used:
AND Number of items with ProductFreeDelivery has a value of 1 is = a value of 1
AND Number of items with ProductCollectionOnly has a value of 1 is = a value of 1
But im sure the above didnt work either?

Its almost working, so just need to get over this hurdle in my logic?

I kinda feel that maybe I should be placing the condition in my recordset somewhere, but I am a little lost to where/how:


= new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsShippingZone",$ecartdb,1);
$rsShippingZone->setQuery("SELECT * FROM shippingzones WHERE ShippingZoneCode = ?");
$rsShippingZone->bindParam("s""".(isset($_SESSION['ZonePostCode'])?$_SESSION['ZonePostCode']:"")  ."""-1"); //colname
= new WA_MySQLi_RS("rsDeliveryCost",$ecartdb,1);
$rsDeliveryCost->setQuery("SELECT * FROM shippingcosts WHERE ShippingCostZone = ? AND ShippingCostWeightTo <= ? AND ShippingCostSize <= ? ORDER BY ShippingCostValue DESC");
$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s""".$rsShippingZone->getColumnVal("ShippingZone")  ."""-1"); //colname
$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s""".$eCart->TotalColumn("TotalWeight")  ."""-1"); //colname2
$rsDeliveryCost->bindParam("s""".$eCart->TotalColumn("TotalSize")  ."""-1"); //colname3
"" == "")     {
    if (
"".(WA_getSavedFormValue("checkoutform","deliverymethod"))  ."" != "Shop Collection") {  // WebAssist Show If
$_SESSION["EstimatedDeliveryCost"] = "".($rsDeliveryCost->getColumnVal("ShippingCostValue"))  ."";
    else {
$_SESSION["EstimatedDeliveryCost"] = 0;        

I just did a SQL test in phpMyAdmin and its NOT returning the correct result

SELECT * FROM shippingcosts WHERE ShippingCostZone = 'LOCAL' AND ShippingCostWeightTo <= 30 AND ShippingCostSize <= 3000 ORDER BY ShippingCostValue DESC

Screenshot of DB

(Note: I think maybe I should be using >= (rather than <=)

Would this make sense in what Im trying to achieve? to me its sounds wrong since im suggesting that the database value is greater or equal to the basket value..

$rsDeliveryCost->setQuery("SELECT * FROM shippingcosts WHERE ShippingCostZone = ? AND ShippingCostWeightTo >= ? AND ShippingCostSize >= ? ORDER BY ShippingCostValue ASC");
