shhhh dont tell ne1 its for a school project, u get lectured that you shouldnt be asking people to do your homework for you:rolleyes:

go to www.w3schools.com and go through the learn asp section, taking note of sessions and databases, really you want to get the link to add a unique id (autonumber) of an item to a session, separated by a comma or whatever, like if they add item 4 and 8 then the session could store

this could then be split() at "," s to get all the items at the checkout

checkboxes could also be used as the values selected are sent to the form as a comma separated string anyway :thumbsup:
