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:

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

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
