Is a DataAssist catalog necessary?

I have tried to ADD To Cart button, but the problem is that the cart page shows no image and no price for the item. I look in the code and I see the default CART WIZARD created names like ID and Name, Description, etc, but no way to link these names to the dynamic database of the actual items' columns I have like ItemName for ID and ItemDescription for Description. As such, the cart looks for eCart defaults rather than database names.

I have ItemThumb for the image, e.g., instead of:
img class="eC_ProductThumb"

I don't see a way to tie in the Add to Cart submit button on the detail page, which has the correct values, to the cart page:
<form name="Cart_1_ATC_<?php echo $row_Rings["ItemName"]; ?>" method="POST" action="<?php echo $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]; ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]:""; ?>">
<input type="hidden" name="Cart_1_ID_Add" value="<?php echo $row_Rings["ItemName"]; ?>" >
<input type="text" name="Cart_1_Quantity_Add" value="1" size="4" >
<input type="submit" value="Add to Cart" name="Cart_1_ATC">

This is posting to self rather than the cart page. The cart page does see the number of items added (like I pressed the button 2 times and it shows 2 items) but does not transmit the values of price or item names...

We could really use an interactive tutorial on adding carts to non-WAsolutions type catalogs...
