order detail page

Thread began 3/04/2010 9:43 am by tim.wolak331163 | Last modified 6/01/2010 3:36 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1201 views | 7 replies |


order detail page

I need to create an order detail page that has all the customer info, i.e. order number what they purchased, shipping info etc. Since I'm using the sample database from WA, I need to combine the data in both the order and orderdetails tables. I have tried using a join statement and when I put it into a repeating region the mysql balks at the limit as it is limiting by 10 so I can page through the orders.

Please let me know how I can combine these tables to create and admin interface to manage my orders.

your orders page should have a link to the order detail page that sends a querystring variable of the OrderID to show the details for.


for example.

the recordset on the order details page should contain a where clause to filer the orderID column on the id querystring:

I am attaching screen shots to demonstrate how the recordset should be configured.

This is also covered in the "Creating an Order History page" tutorial on the eCart support page:

Need help with customer order details page

My link to the customer order details page is working -- it's just nothing is showing up. This is what really confuses me ... much of your documentation does not match what you're saying.

I copies this right from your docs under 5. Customize Order Details:

Add another Variable (Parameter)

The final step in modifying the SQL statement is to add the Variable to be used by this recordset to work with our new SQL statement.
# Click Add (+) to create a new variable.
# In the name field enter paramUserID.
# In the Default value field, enter -1.
# In the Runtime value field, enter $_SESSION['UserID'].

But your example above show totatally different info. Which one is it?

both variables are needed.

The recordset that is created by the DataAssist wizard should already contain parameter to filter the Order by the OrerID query string.

The section of the documentation you are quoting is titled "Add another Variable (Parameter)"

In addition to the Order ID query string variable, you need to filter on the logged in users ID value.

this is done to prevent users from viewing orders that do not belong to them.

Thanks Jason -- still having trouble though

Thanks for clarifying -- I'm a need to know why kinda guy (also known as a pain in the arse).

So I have this right, but I am not getting any "details" on my customer_order_details.php page after I click the link.

I've noticed in my orderdetails table that no "OrderDetailID" info is being saved, though other data is. I suspect without this info my "JOIN" is not joining, and therefore there is no info to display.

What do I need to do to fix this? Thanks again.

Paul, you have multiple threads all asking the same question.

Please limit to one thread for the problem to cut down on confusion. See my reply here:

in your other thread for details on correcting the problem.

Still working on my customer_order_details page -- it shows "no results."

When I test it in the wizard is show zero results.

Here's the sql:

SELECT orders.*, orderdetails.*
FROM orders INNER JOIN orderdetails ON orders.OrderID = orderdetails.DetailOrderID
WHERE orderdetails.DetailOrderID = WADAOrderID AND orders.OrderVisitorID = paramVisitorID

Do you see anything wrong with this?
