Simple planning question

I have eCart 4 and I am just now installing. I am in the pre-planning phase now. I need to know answers for two simple questions in my planning.

Does eCart 4 assign an Sales Order# ?
Does eCart 4 assign an Invoice # ?

Also, I there a flow chart of how eCart would process input and send to output?

thank you in advance.

When eCart stores the order in the orders table, it assigns the ID from the order table as the order number.

It does not create an invoice number. for an invoice number, you could use the Session ID, or you could use the Random Password generator from Data Bridge - Security Assist to create the invoice number.

we do not have a "flow chart of how eCart would process input and send to output". I'm not really sure what you are asking for here to be honest.

thank you for your reply. I am looking for that flow chart now. I thought I had seen one. Do you know under what section or document name I can find it.

My appoligies. I miss-read your reply above that you did have this.

Then can you tell me if eCart 4 can input information from my customerAccount database to populate the customer's order with thier name, shipping address, ect and then output details of sale with items purchased.

In other words, how do I go back in time to see what made up that purchase?

I appoligize for my questions. I am trying to understand if eCart 4 gives me what I want or if your newest eCart has this functionality. I am tying to understand what eCart does so I know what I have to build myself.

during the checkout wizard process, you can set up top have the order information stored in your database.

it will store the customer information to an orders table, and store the cart information to an order details table.

on the eCart support page, there are tutorials for creating an order history page that you may find helpful.

documention states eCart5

Dear Jason,

I read all the tutorials on saving order history and order detail:

ecart_set.pdf
linking to a detail page from your cart page.pdf

All these documents state they required eCart5?????

where do I find info on eCart4 OR does this also apply?

thank you.
