    trying to compare 2 arrays and based on that increment the qty in the shopping cart or add a new product.

    the first one is sc_pid which is equal to the productid querystring

    the second one is sc_pdid = to productdetailsid if the product has attributes as color, size, etc.

    It adds to the cart (based on session array), but i can not get it to incremetn the qty once is already in the cart.

    If i had to do that in ASP, i could have it done in 30 min, but being new to PHP, it took me 24 hours after reading and more reading and Google, and php forums and lots of cigarettes + coffee, and ....

    I managed in the end which is the joy of the job anyway. I love challenge.

    the solution was to create the

    function add_item_to_cart($id,$pdid,$quantity) {
    $cart_id = $id.$pdid; //this the line that got me mixed up - was looking into the wrong direction
    //echo $cart_id;
    // set cookie and store value in session
    $_SESSION["cart"][$cart_id][0] = $id; //$item["productid"];
    $_SESSION["cart"][$cart_id][1] = $quantity;//$quantity
    $_SESSION["cart"][$cart_id][2] = $pdid; //$productdetailid
    header ("location:viewcart.php");//redirect after product added to cart
