PayPal Advanced passing item Name and/or Description

I will do another test and see if I can find the response.

Another question before I do that. I am trying to include the Size and Color for the Description instead of the description text. Once we have this working, it's the size and color for each item we are after anyway.

I tried just changing it to the column name used in the eCart object but it throws an error. There must be more to it that I am not thinking of.

So I currently have this for description variable on the PP_PayAdv_PHP.php page...

$vars[] = 'L_DESC' . ($item_count+1) . '=' . (substr(strip_tags($cart->DisplayInfo("Description")), 0, 127));

I changed it to...

$vars[] = 'L_DESC' . ($item_count+1) . '=' . (substr(strip_tags($cart->DisplayInfo("SizeOption")), 0, 127));

That didn't work even though SizeOption is the column name. I get an error or a Failed response.
On the cart.php and confirm.php pages, I use

<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("SizeOption"); ?>


<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("ColorOption"); ?>

to show the information. I realize that there are some differences such as $cart-> is used on PP_PayAdv_PHP.php page instead of $eCart1-> so I made sure I only changed the column name.

Ultimately I want to concatenate SizeOption and ColorOption together there but I can't even include SizeOption without it throwing an error.
