Product attributes

I want all my products to have an indivdual code which shows on the packing slip when a customer places an order. If i have a product whihc is available in 3 different sizes each different sized item will have a code. These are generally manufacturers given codes and it just makes finding them a little easier. for example currently i have 4 differntly sized tape makers on my site (& not much more) and each one needs a differnt number, but i seem only able to add a model number whihc is the same for all. site is www.corsetmaking.co.uk if that helps.

I've looked up in knowledge bas on how to do this

 

New/Editing Products

 

Figure 2 shows the Products Edit General listing page under the Admin>Catalog>Products>Edit>General section.

 

 

But when i go to Admin>Catalog

 

I only get the option of Categories / Products

 

Categories / Products Search:

Go To: TopWorkroom

 

Categories / Products Status Action

 

and i don't get general section etc - i presume i'm doing something wrong???

Download the zip file (click the little brown and green icon over on the right). Extract the files. Follow the installation instructions contained within (often called README.txt or INSTALL.txt)

thank you very very much :) - (i know it may seem all so obvious to you people)

Which is why you made a complete backup of your files and database before you began work....?

 

That column is missing from your database. There should have been some SQL in the zip for you to run on your database that will add it.

Ther doesn't appear to be any SQL in the zip and no mention iint he instruction how you would run the code - and no i have no backup as i haven't a clue how to do that! i've very much a beginner to everything here - just bolshy enough to jump in and have a go!

You must read the install instructions thoroughly. Down at the bottom is the SQL you require:

 

In your database run the following SQL Statements

 

ALTER TABLE `products_attributes` ADD `code_suffix` varchar(11) NOT NULL default '' AFTER `options_values_id`;

 

ALTER TABLE `orders_products_attributes` ADD `code_suffix` varchar(11) NOT NULL default '' AFTER `products_options_values`;

 

ALTER TABLE `orders_products` ADD `products_code` varchar(20) NOT NULL default '' AFTER `products_model`;

 

ALTER TABLE `products_attributes` ADD `suffix_sort_order` int(11) NOT NULL default '' AFTER `code_suffix`;

Hi, thank you. i have a control panel called (i think) cpanel 10 - and i can't see php admin on it. this is a different server to the one i'm used to, i though that both servers were using cpanel but my other one is different and i know where the phpadmin is on that one - but the one with my oscommerce on - well it's either not there or it's well hidden - could it be i have to ask for it to be installed or something.
