After clicking 'Checkout' the buyer moves to shopcustomer.asp, which uses shopcustomerform.asp to produce the name and address boxes to fill in. On the right of these fields are the shipping methods and shipping address if used.

I cannot find where the size of these table cells is defined in the two files. They are smaller than the 600px normal cart width and fields such as '*Address' appear on two lines because of the restriction ( or oversize of a column on the right.

I have checked shop$colors.asp but cannot find it in there either.

Does anyone know where I can increase the width of this table and the two columns within it please.

Example below:

Hmmm....I found this much in the code, but you might already know this:

The table definition for the customer form is controlled by the first few lines of shop$colors.asp with the following definitions:

const TableDef="<center><table border=0 cellpadding=1 cellspacing=1>"
const TableDefEnd="</table></center>"
const TableRow="<tr bgcolor='#E0EBE0'>"
const TableRowEnd="</tr>"
const TableColumn="<td><font face='Tahoma, Verdana' size=2 color='#000000'>"
const tableColumnEnd="</font></td>"

....but I don't see anything in there about the size. Is the size just defaulting based on the other stuff on the page?

Thanks greatphoto

Yes I got stuck after that too as there are no sizes in those definitions.
It is a fixed width site but with only the left hand margin of 150px fixed, about 600px should be free for the page display but somewhere something is not letting this happen. The form fields look 70% of the surrounding table which is about 80% of the whole space.

While this cart is supposed to be very customisable sometimes it is almost impossible to find whats controlling what!
