Checkout wizard: Store order summary in database - Tables dropdown inaccessible

Checkout wizard: Store order summary in database - Tables dropdown inaccessible


PHP/MySQL server model
eCart 4.5.2 (uninstalled and reinstalled)
DW CS4 (on WinXP SP3)
PayPal Payments Standard
No shipping requirements

I can successfully connect to my remote database.
I have added a Cart.
Thanks to Jimmy Wu's help I have now successfully got beyond the shopping cart page, but am now stuck trying to build the checkout pages.

The eCart checkout wizard:
I have chosen PayPal Payments Standard (as my client can't justify the £20pm fee). There's no shipping as it's all digital goods.

Step 1 of 2: I've added client's PayPal account login email address
Step 2 of 2: doesn't appear as it's PP Standard

Step 1 of 2: The correct DB connection is showing (I've previously tested it and it's working fine). However, the Table dropdown isn't functioning (it's greyed out), so I can't set values.

I've searched the fora, but can't find anything relevant, other than perhaps signing up for an API and then just using PP Express Checkout option. But I don't know if this is just a red herring.

I'm grateful for any light you can shed on this. Thanks!

try toggling the connection to none, then reelecting your connection, this should force the table list to update.
