Thank you for the direction to move the recordset and set the session variable on the confirm page. Below are the setting required for others who may be looking for a similar solution. I have that working on Thrusday!!
Only the shipping rules need to be configured in the eCart Object. You gave me some general direction in a ticket that I will try to follow.
HOWEVER, I ran into a problem last Tuesday night and need to switch to PayPal. I realy don't want to loose all of the effort so far. I am hopping that you, Ray or Jason can advise, as soon as possible!
