Extra address info not transferred to success page or customer email

Extra address info not transferred to success page or customer email

I added company name and department to the checkout page for the customer to fill out. The extra lines are forwarded and displayed on the confirm page for both billing and shipping info. But they don't transfer to the success page, and also don't show up on the email confirmation.

The confirm page was easy to manipulate, I just had to add the lines in the form and the hidden fields. But on the success page there are no hidden fields. What can I do?

the information from the checkout page is stored in session variables when the checkout page posts to the confirm page.

make sure the hidden form element on the confirm page is named exactly the same as the text element on the checkout page.

On the confirm page, go to the server behaviors panel and click the plus button. Select eCart -> General -> Set Session value.

For the trigger and value, click the lightning bolt and selct the hidden form element from the form list.

Set a unique name in the name box.

You can reference the session variable on the success page.
