This is my first time use of VPASP cart.

At present the cross selling links appear either as text links or image links in the area where [add_crossselling] is mentioned in the shopexd.asp

Is there any way that we can have the crosslink products appear on a seperate page and in the main shopexd.asp just have a link to that page. eg. click here to view related products. this would be a link to a new page with all the cross selling items listed there

Any help would be greatly appreciated

For that, I think you'd need to do something like this:

1) Create a copy of the cross-selling function/template-field (in shopfileio.asp) so that it returns the "go to" page rather than the list.
2) Change your product detail template to use that new function
3) Create a new product detail template (a copy of tmp_product.htm, call it tmp_productcross.htm) which uses the normal function, and which has less info on it (ie the "cross-selling info page")

For 1, in shopfileio.asp locate:

Handle_CROSSSELLING value,parsearray, parseRS

and add extra lines under that for:

Handle_CROSSSELLING_GOTO_PAGE value,parsearray, parseRS

Then in shopfileio.asp, add a new function (anywhere'll do) like this:

Sub Handle_CROSSSELLING_GOTO_PAGE(ivalue,parsearray,parseRS)
dim lngcstock
dim strCrossProductIDs,strsql, rs, strmessage, strcdescurl,strurl
dim fieldtype,rc
Dim tcount
Dim thtml
Dim turl
FindInDatabase "CROSSSELLING", strcrossProductids, fieldtype, rc, parsearray
If rc>0 then exit sub
if strCrossProductids="" then exit sub
strsql="select * from products where catalogid in (" & strcrossproductids & ")"
strsql=strsql & " and hide=0"
if getconfig("xstocklow")<>"" then
lngcstock= clng(getconfig("xstocklow"))
strsql = strsql & " and cstock> " & lngcstock
end if
set rs=dbc.execute(strsql)
While Not rs.EOF
set RS=Nothing
if (tcount>0) then
' If using vpasp 5.5, use this line, otherwise don't :
thtml="<a href="&chr(34)&turl&chr(34)&">View Cross Selling Products</a>"
Response.Write "<br>"&thtml
end if
end sub

For 2, in tmp_product.htm, change [ADD_CROSSSELLING] to [ADD_CROSSSELLING_GOTO_PAGE]

Talking about cross-selling stuff makes me think I should make a shameless plug for something else that you might find relevant -

The "Customers who bought this, also bought these..." template-field:
