eCart Vouchers

Me again.
I have set up a basic discount voucher as per Creating a Coupon system for your eCart store (Interactive Tutorial).
It works.
I have followed showpost.php?p=23007&postcount=2
Steps
Data base table..OK
Recordset with filtering..OK tested
Session Variables set up, worked in the basic setup.
"<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(!($totalRows_rsCoupon == 0)) {
$_SESSION["PromoCode"] = "".$row_rsCoupon['CouponCode'] ."";
}
?>
<?php
if (!session_id()) session_start();
if(!($totalRows_rsCoupon == 0)) {
$_SESSION["PromoAmount"] = "".$row_rsCoupon['CouponAmount'] ."";
}
?>"
Followed instructions (I think, checked so many times)
see screen shots,
NO DISCOUNTS, MY OTHER SHIPPING RULES WORK
I know I have done or not done something simple, But I cant find it
Can you please help.
Thanks
David

first thing i would check is to make sure that the code for the recordset is before the set session value code.


I would then echo the sessions to the cart page to make sure they are being set:

php:
<?php

echo("promo code: ".$_SESSION["PromoCode"]."<br />");
echo(
"promo amount: ".$_SESSION["PromoAmount"]."<br />");
?>



if your still having a problem, please send a copy of your page in a zip archive so I can look at the code.

eCart Voucher

Jason
Alas it still does not work.
Just to make sure.
I have the voucher form on my shopping cart page before any "add to cart" buttons and outside any other form.
I enter the voucher code and press submit, then add items to the shopping cart, I see the discount in the shopping cart summary. (simple version worked this way)

The code
<?php
echo("promo code: ".$_SESSION["PromoCode"]."<br />");
echo("promo amount: ".$_SESSION["PromoAmount"]."<br />");
?>

I dont know exactly where to place this code.
I have tried to place this in various places on my page, each time it either will not display the page, disables the add to cart button or interferes with the add to cart function and will not display in cart. It also displays words "PromoCode" and PromoAmount" top left in the browser window outside of page content.
Do I need to create a new column for PromoCode in my ecart object.
** Can I have more than 1 ecart object?
I have attached the code for the page.
Thanks again for your help
David

the problem is that the set session value code is before the code that the creates the rsCoupon recordset,

you will need to rearrange the code so that the set session value code is after the recordset code.
