Hi there,

Nice forum - have bought and worked through some of the 'Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL' book but can't figure out how to solve my little problem. Have searched through forums, and whilst I've found some useful information on associative arrays (which I haven't fully grasped yet) I'm afraid I need to ask for help.

I've already posted about it here:


I thought I may as well link to that thread rather than create a duplicate thread here.

If anything's unclear, please let me know and I'll do my best to clarify what I'm after.

In short, I'd like to read the results of a user's choices from a few list menus from an optional extras form (fields are created dynamically from a database table) and assign session variables accordingly (or at least end up with a text string which I can use to display confirmation of the chosen optional extras and include in details of the shopper's order).

Many thanks.
