I would like to add a checkbox field to the customer's check out. THis field would be part of the order.

The checkbox would ask "Please send samples"

Im new to this software, any help would be wonderful

You can create a "Please send samples" checkbox, to be associated with a customer's record, by using 'xcustomerotherbypass'.

See this help note for more detail:
https://www.vpasp.com/helpnotes/shoptocdetail.asp?id=21#148

First, you must MANUALLY insert a new field into the customer table. VP-ASP cannot do this for you.
We have called our new field "samplereq".

To add a checkbox called "samplereq" to the customer form.
Set the following in the Shop Configuration:

'Xcustomerotherfields' samplereq
'Xcustomerothercaptions' Please send samples
'Xcustomerotherbypass' samplereq


Now edit shopcustomerform.asp and MANUALLY place your own checkbox into the file:

The following example code shows this. Locate the following lines in shopcustomerform.asp -

AddOtherFields
AddPassword

Beneath them, insert the following code to 'add a checkbox':
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
'checkbox for "send samples" selection
Response.write tablerow & tablecolumn
Response.write "Please send samples " & TablecolumnEnd
Response.write tablecolumn
%>
<input type=checkbox name=samplereq value=True ><%
Response.write tablecolumnend & tableRowend
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you want this field to also be kept in the orders table, MANUALLY insert a new field into the orders table as well, and set Admin Set-Up 'xcustomerotherfieldsinorder' to YES.

You can see the new field, in the Unprocessed orders page, when you Edit that individual order.

I have been working on this for hours and can not get it to save the answer into the database.

I went with a checkbox and created the firlds in the database using MS-Access. I set field format to Yes/No. I followed all other steps but nothing shows in the database.

Dear Brian,

There was a slight spelling error in the code provided. If you have created a new field in your table called "samplereq" then you should also have this exact value in Xcustomerotherfields and Xcustomerotherbypass.

I have fixed the above code so that it displays the correct information.

If you still have issues, please log a ticket to our support helpdesk at https://www.vpasp.com/virtprog/helpdesk

Thank you.

We'll need to take a look at your actual site setup to see why this may not be functioning correctly.

Please log this into our helpdesk and provide us with your FTP and site details by entering them into the "Your Website Information" section in the help desk.

Thank you.

Regards,
Michael

Tried this, works great, except that the new fields don't show up on the order edit as stated in the instructions. What else do I have to do or are only certain fields displayed?

thanks
