Hi guys,
I tried this with suppliers and it works except that when I select the supplier from the drop down, it takes me to the shopproducts.asp page with no product displayed.

I believe the query is not retrieving the products attached to the suppliers. Here is my code:
Dim Mfgset,sqlstr,myconn,strMfgline,rs
ShopOpenDatabaseP myconn
Set rs = myconn.Execute("select distinct ucase(suppliers.name) as mfg, products.supplierid as pid FROM suppliers INNER JOIN products ON suppliers.supplierid = products.supplierid where suppliers.supplierid is not null") %>

<form name="form1">
<select name="menu1" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)" style="font-size:8pt">
<OPTION VALUE="Select Supplier" selected>Select by Brand</option>
<% Do While Not rs.EOF
if rs("mfg")<>"" then %>
<OPTION VALUE="shopquery.asp?mfg=<%= rs("pid") %>"><%= rs("mfg") & "(" & rs("pid") & ")" %></option>

<% end if

rs.MoveNext %>
<% Loop %>

What do I make shopdsiplayproducts.asp to accept the supplier id (pid) so that it can write out all the products with that supplier id and format it exactly as it will normally do when a product is searched.

I have tried changing shopdisplayproduct.asp which is where the shopquery.asp redirect to but all I get is all the products and not the products specific to that supplier.

Please help

Hey all.

Thanks for this thread

I have followed these directions and the homepage looks great. Drop downs look great.

Only problem is they do not do anything.

I did one menu for the Artist (artist field in my table)
and one menu for the Label (mfg field in my table)

here is my code from the Headers page

<!-- START CATEGORY BOX -->
<h2>Label Search</h2>
<div class="box ac">
<% ShowManufacturers %> </div>
<!-- END CATEGORY BOX -->
<!-- START ARTIST BOX -->
<h2>Artist Search</h2>
<div class="box ac">
<% ShowArtists %> </div>
<!-- END ARTIST BOX -->

Here is my code from the DB Page:

Sub ShowManufacturers
' All russ's code starts here:
Dim Mfgset,sqlstr,myconn,strMfgline,rs
ShopOpenDatabaseP myconn
Set rs = myconn.Execute("SELECT distinct ucase(mfg) as mfg from products where mfg is not null order by ucase(mfg)") 'ucase for access
%> </font></font> <font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
<form name="form1">
<select name="menu1" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)" style="font-size:8pt">
<OPTION VALUE="Select Manufacturer" selected>Search Labels</option>
<% Do While Not rs.EOF
if rs("mfg")<>"" then %>
<OPTION VALUE="shopquery.asp?mfg=<%= rs("mfg") %>"><%= rs("mfg") %></option>
<% end if

rs.MoveNext %>
<% Loop %>
</SELECT>
</form>
</font>
<%rs.Close
myconn.Close
Set rs = Nothing
Set myconn = Nothing
' all russ's code ends here
End Sub
Sub ShowArtists
' All russ's code starts here:
Dim artistset,sqlstr,myconn,strartistline,rs
ShopOpenDatabaseP myconn
Set rs = myconn.Execute("SELECT distinct ucase(artist) as artist from products where artist is not null order by ucase(artist)") 'ucase for access
%> </font></font> <font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">
<form name="form2">
<select name="menu2" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)" style="font-size:8pt">
<OPTION VALUE="Select Artist" selected>Search Artist</option>
<% Do While Not rs.EOF
if rs("artist")<>"" then %>
<OPTION VALUE="shopquery.asp?artist=<%= rs("artist") %>"><%= rs("artist") %></option>
<% end if

rs.MoveNext %>
<% Loop %>
</SELECT>
</form>
</font>
<%rs.Close
myconn.Close
Set rs = Nothing
Set myconn = Nothing
' all russ's code ends here
End Sub
%>

i'm a bit stuck at this point

I actually got this working so thanks, and played with it to match my site, but can someone tell me how to have the results in nomal text instead of all upper case?

Mmmm, just as an add on to this, would it be easy to count the products with that manufacturer and return the result next to the manufacturer?

Hi Mark,

Set rs = myconn.Execute("SELECT distinct ucase(mfg) as mfg from products where mfg is not null order by ucase(mfg)") 'ucase for access


Just remove the references to 'ucase' (or 'upper') and it will read as it was originally entered into the database.



cheers

Russ

Hi Mark,

I haven't looked at this really yet, but as an idea, what about in this section :
<% Do While Not rs.EOF
if rs("mfg")<>"" then %>
<OPTION VALUE="shopquery.asp?mfg=<%= rs("mfg") %>"><%= rs("mfg") %></option>
<% end if

rs.MoveNext %>
<% Loop %>


After this line:
if rs("mfg")<>"" then %>


Add in another line of code to count the number if products with that mfg name.

set pcnt= myconn.execute("select count(ccode) from products where mfg='" & rs("mfg")& "'")

add pcnt into the dim statement above

You then need to write it into the option data......

I'm not quiet sure here, it seems a bit tricky.....

Hi Guys.

I have this working great, but it's displaying manufacturers for products that we no longer stock or have no stock of, I don't want to delete these products from the database as this screws with the reports.

What I want to be able to do is make the search only display the manufacturer if there is stock of that particular product or if its not hidden.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Mark

Hi Mark,

add your checks for stock and hidden products to your Sub ShowManufacturers

Set rs = myconn.Execute("SELECT distinct ucase(mfg) as mfg from products where mfg is not null and cstock>0 and hide is not null order by ucase(mfg)")

if it's any help, we released a supplier/manufacturer addon for this kind of thing a while ago, have a look at:
http://www.bigyellowzone.com/shopexd.asp?id=154
which also has a demo link on it.
it lets you use a drop down or a tabular list, for suppliers and/or manufacturers, and it'll use the standard vpasp logic when it comes to things like stock-checking, productmatch, hide etc.

Hi

I'm also thinking of doing similar but in my case it is not a Dropdown, it has to be in tabular format with three columns.

Please advise me how to do ?

Why aren't you using the supplierid. This appears from a drop down and is pulled in from the supplier table so you wont encounter spelling errors as you might from the mfg field....

some people use supplier for the real supplier (ie the people who physically supply the goods; the wholesaler), and the mfg for the manufacturer, so they're often different.
If using something like the mfg then it'd normally need to be encoded too (ie using Server.URLEncode(variable) for the mfg value in the url.
Our addon caters for that aspect on its dropdown/tabular-list; it has both supplier and mfg options and you can use either/both.

Hello,

i have problem displaying all products for choosen manufacturer using URL in product extended description template, e.g.

<a href="shopquery.asp?mfg=[mfg]">All products</a>

With such URL it displays both parent and child products, i would like only parent products.
I tried with additional parameter: &higherCatalogId, but i can find any valid expressions.

Did some already have solution for my problem?

Thanks for help...
