Order Number not showing on email

Order Number not showing on email

I hadn't reported this before because somehow it had started working, but once again the Order Number is not showing up on the email confirmation. I found this thread but I'm not sure where to select the lines indicated. showthread.php?t=13817

I've attached my WAUE_confirm file to this thread. Thank you.

Also, where do I change it so that the order number starts with leading 0's, so instead of order 1, it should start with order 000001.

Finally, on the table 'OrderDetails' on the 'DetailProductID' it's picking up the number from the ID on the Products Page. What I need is to change it to pick up the number from another column called 'MessageNumber'. What file contains that info so that I can make that small change?

Order Number and Detail Product ID

I still have the following questions:

Where do I change it so that the order number starts with leading 0's, so instead of order 1, it should start with order 000001.

Finally, on the table 'OrderDetails' on the 'DetailProductID' it's picking up the number from the ID on the Products Page. What I need is to change it to pick up the number from another column called 'MessageNumber'. What file contains that info so that I can make that small change?

The orderID is displayed on the checkout success page and in the email body. You can add leading 0's directly to those files.

The DetailProductID comes from the ID in the shopping cart. You would want to update any page where you have add to cart buttons and change the ID column to the MessageNumber when it is added to the cart.

Order Number and Detail Product ID

Sorry, I need to clarify. It's all database driven. The OrderID field in the Orders table (created by eCart checkout) is an auto incremented number. It starts with 1. I want it to start with 0000001 and move forward to 0000099 (when it gets to 99), then 0000100 and so on. If I just add 0s on the page, it will always have the same amount of leading 0's so it won't do what I need. What I did is checked marked ZeroFill in the mySql db and gave it a length of 7 so it makes room for up to 1000000. I also changed it on the orderdetails page (generated by eCart), but although it's displays correctly on the dbs, it won't show with the leading 0s on the order receipt. Any ideas?

As far as the DetailProductId column, it's picking up the autoincremented ID field in my products db. I want to change it to pick it up from my 'MessageNumber' column, but I still can't find where to change this.

I think I got it figured out. I'm not a PHP programmer (or any type of programmer), but after much research I used printf and sprintf and it's working fine. But I still need help with (from above):

"As far as the DetailProductId column, it's picking up the autoincremented ID field in my products db. I want to change it to pick it up from my 'MessageNumber' column, but I still can't find where to change this. "

That should be on the page that adds the item to the cart. If you attach a copy of that page I can try to give more precise instructions.
