In admin within left column theres a line that says

out of stock products : xxx

then it reports on number of out of stocks :-)

For some strange reason I feel an urge to add a new line below , or delete that info as id prefer a line that says

Products IN STOCK : xxx

anybody help me out with some code or pointers :-)

Hi Paul,
I'm still working with v6.50 but I think the routines for displaying this are the same.

The stock information is displayed in the file tmp_adminheaderfull.htm. The <%outofstockproducts%> is called from a sub in shopheaders.asp. To change this to Products In Stock open file shopheaders.asp and save a copy.
Find sub outofstockproducts.
Copy the whole sub and paste immediately into the code after the 'end sub' line and make the following changes (in red) to the pasted copy.

sub instockproducts
dim sql
dim myconn, headerrecs
shopopendatabaseP myconn

'get number of products in stock
sql = "select count(catalogid) as instock from products where cstock>0"
set headerrecs = myconn.execute(sql)

if not headerrecs.eof then
response.write headerrecs("instock")
response.write "0"
end if

closerecordset headerrecs
shopclosedatabase myconn
end sub

Save and close

Now open tmp_adminheader_full.htm

Find Out Of Stock Products: and change to Products In Stock:
Find <%outofstockproducts%> and change to <%instockproducts%>
Save and close.
Upload and test.
