Ok, what I'm trying to accomplish is a working shopping cart. When I bring up the search and the user enters the quantity that they want in each field, they hit submit. What I need to do is write these values to the database, but I only want the to write the values that are greater than 0. Also, I need to be able to make each quantity unique, which is why I'm using the <% request("quantity," & m). To write to the database I'm using the For Next statement. what my question is, is this the right path to go.
