eCart product options (older)

Sorry to jump in here, I was not sure whether to start a new thread but I am having a similar problem.

I will be selling photo prints in various sizes, the size effects the price. I have looked through all the various threads and the ecom recipes and just can't seem to figure this out. I have tried all of them out and am getting more and more confused! Seems like such a common thing to need to do on an ecom site but no clear way to do it.

eg of what I need:
Framed print available in small @ £49
medium @ £79
large @ £99
xlarge @ £110

all products will vary in exact size and price, some will not have an extra large version available.

Just read this post and thought it might work for me to add an additional column in the productOptions table for Price, and set these to £49, £79, £99 and £110 as couldn't work out how to add them to the base price. Managed to get the drop down to pick up the size options and tried using the value as the ProductID, but it doesn't pass over the option that the user chooses ie. small to the cart and it still seems to be taking in the base value for the price instead of the one in the productOptions table.

Sorry if this doesn't explain things well but hope you can understand what I need to achieve and how best to do it in detail as really struggling to understand this!
