Errors in "Install Guide" for Authorize Net AIM contrib

Recommended Posts

On the first page of the Install Guide, one is told to "Run this SQL query on your store's database:"

 

ALTER TABLE 'orders' ADD 'transaction_details' NEXT NULL AFTER 'cc_expires';

 

I got syntax errors if I ran the query like this, using the "mysql_send.php" program from the book "PHP & MySQL for Dummies" (which uses mysqli instead of mysql commands). But after I eliminated the single quote marks from the query, then it worked just fine, as...

 

ALTER TABLE orders ADD transaction_details NEXT NULL AFTER cc_expires ;

 

I don't know enough about MySQL queries to know why this is so.

 

Another problem I found with the Install Guide was on page 2, where it said to make a change to the catalog/admin/orders.php . The problem is that "before" and "after" examples shown are identical. There is no indication just what changes need to be made.

To clarify my prior post, I used the "mysql_send.php" program, downloaded from the book's author's website, to enter and run the suggested MySQL query.
