Inventory control in eCart5

Thread began 4/06/2010 1:48 pm by Badger | Last modified 7/15/2010 1:44 pm by Badger | 3541 views | 28 replies


I couldn't get anywhere with that direction so I've gone back to a hopefully simpler approach described by Sades but need help finishing it off:

I've created a new field in my items table called Inventory then in the eCart calculations panel I added a new formula called substractions with this formula:

[Inventory] - [Quantity] so creating the formula substractions = Inventory - Quantity,

On the product page I open the "Add to cart button" server behavior and I bind the Inventory field to the Inventory column

On the checkout_success page, I add eCart display manager for a receipt, and add the following code near <?php echo $eCart->DisplayInfo("Name"); ?>
to update the Inventory

$IDItem $eCart1->DisplayInfo("ID");
$query_substractions "UPDATE products SET Inventory = $FinalStock WHERE ID = $IDItem;
$substractions mysql_query($query_substractions$connTEST) or die(mysql_error());

Idea is when the success pages loads it subtracts the order quantity from the Inventory field.

But I'm getting a sql error "You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'WHERE LampID = etc'

Any idea if this should work and what I might be missing in this code?
