Thank you Ray, I appricate the help. I am a little wiry of these code changes I am making, but are essential as the more recent ecommerce code I created a while ago is more robust and easier to maintain. The code is pretty easy to adapt but of course the only challenge is ensuring that the product options (custom code that you did for me) is updated to use MySQLi references...the next challenge would be to directly edit the eCart_PHP.php file manually and to add in all the product option code line by line. I no longer use Dreamweaver (I cancelled my subscription) so I am having to hand code using Brackets IDE. Scary stuff.
