Finding an eCart value

Finding an eCart value

I need to filter an update query with an eCart column value.

I'm using a while statement to poll a table of books; one of the eCart columns is the recID for any book in the cart. I need to update the purchaseDate field for any book whose recID is in the cart.

Is there a clean way to just try and match the recID values in the cart in an UPDATE statement??

Thanks,

Mike

you can usse the cart conditional total to return the quantity of an item with a specific recID.

for example, to look up the cart quantity where recID is "22" you could use this code:

$yourCartName->ConditionalTotal("Quantity", "recID", "22")

where yourCartName is the name of your cart object.

I think I understand this one; what I need is something like this:

  $query = mysql_query('UPDATE books SET purchaseDate = '.$now.' WHERE recID = '<a value in any of the recID fields in the cart object>);  



Does that make sense??

you would need to hand code the recordset loop to use the value from the recordset and use this in a n if statement to trigger the update

something like this:
do {
if ($yourCartName->ConditionalTotal("Quantity", "recID", $row_RecordsetName['recID']) > 0) {
$query = mysql_query('UPDATE books SET purchaseDate = '.$now.' WHERE recID = $row_RecordsetName['recID']);
}
} while ($row_RecordsetName = mysql_fetch_assoc($RecordsetName))

Thanks, Jason -- I'll play a little and see what happens!!

Jason -- the code creates the following errors when called in the success.php page:

  Notice: Undefined variable: bookfair in D:\WebDev\htdocs\ccds2011\success.php on line 85

Fatal error: Call to a member function ConditionalTotal() on a non-object in D:\WebDev\htdocs\ccds2011\success.php on line 85  



php:
<?php

    
function updateBookspD()    {
        
$now=mktime();
        do    {
            if (
$bookfair->ConditionalTotal("Quantity""recID"$row_books['recID']) > 0) {
            
$query mysql_query('UPDATE books SET purchaseDate = '.$now.' WHERE recID = '.$row_books['recID']);
            }
        } 
        while (
$row_books mysql_fetch_assoc('books'));
        }
            
?>



Line 85 is the if statement. . .

Thoughts??

either this code is before the require once line that attaches the cart include file, or the require once line that attaches the cart include file is missing all together.

This is at the top of the file:

php:
<?php

//WA eCart Include
require_once("WA_eCart/bookfair_PHP.php");
?>
<?php 
require_once('Connections/ccds.php'); ?>
<?php
$bookfair
->GetContent();
?>



The function declaration is the last code prior to the <DOCTYPE> declaration. There is a Clear Cart button on the page that does function properly. . .

Out to a meeting -- back this afternoon. . . thanks

it would be much easier if you would send the full php file in a zip archive so I can see the full page code in context, without the php file all i can do is guess at things that could be wrong.
