  I want to base our shipping by the total quantity of items in the cart, ship to state, and shipping method chosen.

I have the following rules applied to a shipping (as entered into ecart)
total number of items >10
total number of items <150
session ship_stg ==1
session ship_method==1
flat rate $10

ship_stg is the state group (ie a list of states that all have the same shipping)
so - i have plopped the state group and the ship method to display on the view cart page so i can see thier values. I get a result of 1 and 1. the number of items in the cart is 50 (qty 50 of 1 item). however my returned shipping value is 0.

now if i change the above first rule above to be be items>1
then the shipping returns a result of $10.

so it appears as if its using the number of UNIQUE items in the cart.
how do i get it to use the TOTAL items in the cart?

i think im missing something simple here.......  

Use the "Subtotal for any Column" trigger instead:

If the Subtotal For Column [Quantity] is [>] a value of [50]

If the Subtotal For Column [Quantity] is [<] a value of [150]
