I have a client that has different color options for a variety of products. Each product has it's own set of available colors. Is it possible to use the 'featureother' column to put in a more recognizable name that appears in the product features list on the products page in the admin section to make it easier to add features to the product?

Thanks in advance

I figured this one out so here is the quick fix for anyone that needs it. In shopa_addproduct.asp in the Sub Routine 'GetFeatures' change the SQL statement to select 'featureother'
Then in the loop change featurecaption to featureother - as below
I commented out the original line.

Do While NOT rscat.EOF
'features(featurecount)= rscat("featurecaption") & " [" & rscat("featurenum") & "]"
features(featurecount)= rscat("featureother") & " [" & rscat("featurenum") & "]"

That does it there, now in the ProdFeatures table add the description that you want to see in the Features list to the 'Other Fields' field so that it makes more sense when you are trying to select a feature that uses the same caption but has a lot of different possibilites when adding or updating a product.

Hope this helps
