Thank you! Sometimes the obvious isn't. This is a follow-up on 5/10: Thanks to Ray's feedback I was able to get the cart up and running in a couple of more days after a week of pulling my hair out. I'm now in test mode with Authorize.net and progressing nicely. I've programmed in several languages (over the past 20 years or so), but nothing Internet wise more than html. I had no idea that php had an error trapping capability. Dumb to some, but a lifesaver for me. THANKS RAY!!
