eCart only one Size Option Price showing in cart from detail page

eCart only one Size Option Price showing in cart from detail page

Basically online store sells two types of Clocks in two sizes/prices with numerous image options

Clock Type One -- Size large $129, Size small $89
Clock Type Two -- Size large $129, Size small $89
Then there are options for images printed on each item.

Have setup first products page for Type selection.
Then redirect to page to select image Option.
Then redirected to detail page where Size is selected from dynamic menu and then added to cart

Database tables are setup
clock_type: ClockTypeID, ClockType, ClockImage
clock_size: ClockSizeID, ClockSize, ClockPrice
options: OptionsID, ClockTypeID, ClockSizeID
clock_graphic: ClockGraphicID, ClockGraphicName, ClockGraphicImage, ClockTypeID
clock_options: ClockOptionID, ClockGraphicID, OptionID

I am having a hard time working out how to setup the Price for the shopping cart.

I have a recordset rsSize connected to table clock_size for the eCart itemPrice. That is the only table that has the clock prices because price is based only on Size
$ATC_itemPrice = floatval("".$row_rsSize['ClockPrice'] ."");// column binding

and a dynamic menu for the Size select
<select name="eCart1_1_Size_Add" id="eCart1_1_Size_Add">
<option value="">Select A Size</option>
do {
<option value="<?php echo $row_rsSize['ClockSize']?>"><?php echo $row_rsSize['ClockSize']?></option>
} while ($row_rsSize = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsSize));
$rows = mysql_num_rows($rsSize);
if($rows > 0) {
mysql_data_seek($rsSize, 0);
$row_rsSize = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsSize);

Problem is, on the shopping cart page the price is always displayed for the large item (first in select list). The description shows the correct item from the dynamic menu label. Screen grabs attached

Obviously I am missing a connection somewhere to pass the correct price to the shopping cart....?

you need to create a price lookup recordset that is filtered on the selected size and use the price column from the lookup recordset.

set the lookup recordset to filter the ClockSize column on the eCart1_1_Size_Add form element to return the price associated to the selected size.

OK, I created a recordset for rsPriceLookup and have tried to work out how to get the eCart to return the correct price. Now I get $0.00 price result.

The rsPriceLookup filters by ClockSize = URL Parameter "ClockPrice" (I also tried ClockSize)

the eCart
$ATC_itemQuantity = "".$_POST["eCart1_1_Quantity_Add"] ."";// column binding
$ATC_itemSize = "".$_POST["eCart1_1_Size_Add"] ."";// column binding
$ATC_itemPrice = floatval("".$row_rsPriceLookup['ClockSize'] ."");// column binding

I tried changing to ClockPrice. Same result. 0.00

Attached is detail page and shopping cart page.

isn't the price in the ClockPrice column?

instead of binding the Price cart column to the ClockSize recordset column:

$ATC_itemPrice = floatval("".$row_rsPriceLookup['ClockSize'] ."");// column binding

shouldn't you be using the ClockPrice?

$ATC_itemPrice = floatval("".$row_rsPriceLookup['ClockPrice'] ."");// column binding

As I included in my previous post, I tried both ClockPrice and ClockSize. Both result in 0.00

Screen grab attached showing recordset details

Plus if it helps I have the site online in preview mode

the filtering needs to be set use the Form Variable "eCart1_1_Size_Add", not a URL parameter.
