Dynamic Add to cart buttons on my own catalogue page

Dynamic Add to cart buttons on my own catalogue page

When I place add to cart button on the catalogue page, which we created ourselves, and make it as a dynamic button, how can I have them to talk with database?
In other words, how can I specify the button to represent exact item in the database.
We are using the free eCommerce MySQL database provided by WebAssist, and created product insert/delete pages using dataassist, and the product sku and other columns are stored in the database. Catalogue page has the recordset, named "record set 1", which is linking to the database. I just can't get the add to car buttons specifying the each products, it always refer to the first line of the database.

When you add the add to cart button to the page, select the option to lookup item from a recordset.

On the bindings tab, this will set the ID column to use the ID column from the recordset selected.

when this is added to the page, it will create a hidden form element, the hidden form element will have the value set to use the id column from the recordset, this will pass the correct item ID to the add to cart behavior when selected.

If your having trouble getting this to work, please compress you page to a zip archive and attach the zip file to your message so I can see the code to have an idea what may be wrong.
