There are two ways to do this.

1. If you want fields for customer to see and in emails to merchant and customer using

xcartfields=ccode,cname, cdescription
This puts those fields into the cart.

2. If you only want merchant to see them when they view the order, use
xdisplayorderfields=ccode
This will add the ccode to other order display on the Control panel

These and other VP-ASP handy hints are in the Guide to VP-ASP

The Shop Configuration is the heart of VP-ASP. It allows you to do numerous things without the need for programming. So there is no "file" to change.

1. Logon to VP-ASP Control Panel
2. Select Set-up Tab
3. In the search box enter the configuration option you want to change
say xcartfields

4. It will then display the current values and you now change them to

ccode,cname, cdescription

There is no trivial solution to this and a good solution will require some ASP programming knowledge. In file shopproductsubs.asp there is a routine call GetNameInCart (Rsitem, dbc)

This is where the fields you want get added to the cart description.
It is possible to change one line to add the database field name in front of the values.

If you change this line to this
nameincart=nameincart & fieldvalue
To
nameincart=nameincart & "<b>" & cartfields(i) & "</b>: " & fieldvalue
This adds the database field name before the value.

You will now see.
cname: Apple Set
cdescription: Non slip apple peeler

A proper solution would probably change the field names to English. but there is no easy way to do this without more ASP logic.

Hope this helped.
