i tried that and drag and dropped the color choice column from bindings, but when i test nothing appears in the cart under color.
i don't know if the add to cart button procedure has anything to do with this, but the first step in the add to cart button is setting 'Look up item ID from recordset' and the recordset is rs_itemscat3 for the items. The colors have a different recordset, rs_colors, so in the bindings column step, colorchoice has a default value of <?php echo $row_rs_colors['color']; ?>
Would this code here, somehow need changing to add the rs_colors recordset?
$row_rs_itemscat3 = mysql_fetch_assoc($rs_itemscat3);
