Try using a database for each customer account - use "CREATE TABLE..." as the SQL command whenever someone creates the account and then have a picture as the shopping cart - when someone clicks the picture, it takes the values of all the forms, multiplies them by the price (if needed) and enters the data into the database. At least... thats the only way I can think of.

yes, but how do i create a session for each item added to cart.
eg. if i add item 122 to the cart and item 56 then how do i retreive the all the sessions created, is there a command?
or do i have to say something liek.
if sesison("1") = true then ""
if sesison("2") = true then ""
if sesison("3") = true then ""
all the way upto the last item.
do you know wat i mean?
if i know how to retrieve all sessions that have been created then i can do it so simple.

please hlp

ok, just found out how to do that, list all sessions.

dim i
dim j
Response.Write("Session variables: " & j)
For i=1 to j
Response.Write(Session.Contents(i) & "<br />")

now im curious, because if i us this code, it lists my username session and my session that allows access to my admin pages. how do i exclude them.
