Hi there,

If I print out a list of items in a user's shopping cart and allow him to
update the amount of each item he wants, how can I write this back into the

If it was just one item then on submission of the form I'd just update where
$productId = productId, but how do you do that when you never know how many
items he might have in the cart?

Thanks ever so much (could you cc me please?)
