Missing Order number in Email Confirmation

Hi,

I've almost achieved perfection. One last issue that's keeping me from my goal.

The code below displays perfectly on the web after the shopping process is complete on my checkout_success.php page.

php:
<?php echo ((isset($_SESSION["eCart1_OrderID"]))?$_SESSION["eCart1_OrderID"]:""?>



However I can't seem to get this same order number output on my email confirmation page.
How is this accomplished?

Thanks in advance for your continued support!

Missing Order number in Email Confirmation
I have the same issue of the session orderID from the confirm page not displaying in the email - but if I generate the email receipt from success page it works fine-

I wonder if the orderID has not been committed to the orders table in the database yet?

possibly the email trigger happens after store summary

Did you just take the Universal Email section from the confirm page and paste it into the success page?

Simple as that?

Thanks for the tip!

I physically moved the Universal Email section to the bottom of the page just before the </body> tag and it works as desired now.

Sometimes the email behavior will be applied before the store order summary behavior which creates the session variable, if that is the case, you can select the Universal Server behavior in the Server Behavior list, go to code view and cut the Universal Email code. Then select t the Store order summary behavior, in code view scroll to the end of the highlighted code and paste Universal Email back in after the store order summary code.
