Internel shopping cart

I am retrieving costs and product id's from a sql db. and need to build a
shopping cart around it.
How do I store the selected items and qty req so I can move into another
catalog and total up as im going.

Just a couple of hints will do, Im familiar with vb script but not java
based code , and im wondering how to store what they select so I can move
around different product ranges.

I generally think of a shopping cart as a fancy name for a session
array. And here is a some good resource that includes how to use
session arrays:

Session Object

htm/ref_vbom_seso.a sp

And here are some more shopping cart resources:

And if you don't want to "roll your own," this resource has a list of
free and commercial shopping cart components, as well as some pure ASP
shopping carts:

Thanks for the resources.
I am stuck with creating my own due to the cart intergrating into sql serv
and an accounting system as well as into a unix stock control system and
banking system.

Just got to get my head around best way to store users select data and get
it in/out of cart and recalculate on it.
Thanks
Don
