That helps.  Rereading their message, there was nothing to indicate that 
this was the value of a field in MySQL.  The eCommerce solutions I am 
currently using are both in MySQL (zen-cart and virtuemart). So long as 
I know what to look for I can easily access/check the db fields.  It 
would be nice had they noted the table, but that probably varies too much.

Your advice helps a lot.
