I want to be able to fill in the cart from a pdf file. I have some customers whose orders are placed from the equipment manual which has part #'s and descriptions, but are in a pdf file. THose files sometimes have as many as 1000 items. Doing it from a database would be very time consuming. Would prefer to be able to open the pdf, click on the part, have it go to the cart where they could choose the quantity.

you can add this link on your pdf

<a href="shopaddtocart.asp?productid=1&quantity=1">Click to Order</a>

but it requires 2 paramenters: Productid and Quantity as shown below.

then they can change the quantity as they wish and hit calculate button

Do you mean that the link for each product would have that? Or is it just a link at the bottom of the pdf itself?

The link for each product would have to have that and the product id would have to match what it is in the cart on your web site.
