Help eCart Calculations

I had this working previously, but cannot figure out what I would have changed to cause it not to work.

I have an add to cart button where I have 2 Checkboxes. The default value on the checkbox is 1. I created a calculation called GolfSingle with the formula [RegGolfSingle]*75 - "RegGolfSingle" being the name of one of my check box fields. Then another calculation called GolfFour with the formula [RegGolfFour]*275. Finally, I have a calculation named TruePrice - [TotalPrice]+[GolfSingle]+[GolfFour]. As i said, I had this working, but now the additional amounts are not being added in the shopping cart. I have checked to make sure the "TruePrice" binding is in the "Total" column in my shopping cart.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I'll add the site address, and FTP info to the PM section

On the cart display page, you where showing the Price in the Price field, I updated it to show the truePrice.

you should also update the total price calculation:

[Price] * [Quantity]

to use the calculations for true price in the price field:

([Price]+[GolfSingle]+[GolfFour]) * [Quantity]

After updating the Total price calculation, I am getting

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /home/ltacorg/public_html/WA_eCart/LTAC14_PHP.php on line 10

here is line 10

$itmObj->TotalPrice = ($itmObj->Price+[GolfSingle]+[GolfFour]) * $itmObj->Quantity;//c

I tried the calculation both with a space before and after the "*", and without

are [GolfSingle] and [GolfFour] columns? Or are they calcualtions?

you cant use calculations names in a calcualtion. you would need to use the calcualation itselct in place of the name, so if

GolfSingle is the name of the calculation defined as:


you would use the definition in the total price calcualtion:

([Price] + ([RegGolfSingle]*75) + ([RegGolfFour]*275)) * [Quantity]
