we need the source code (the original schoolorderform.php) to be able to do anything really

On your 'post' page, make sure you're referencing the variables via the $_POST[''] superglobal.


print("Name: ".$_POST['name']."<br />");

What your problem looks like is that you're not putting the subtotal, shipping and final total as "hidden" variables in the form that posts to the final page.  Be sure you do this within the <form> tags.

<input id="subtotal" name="subtotal" type="hidden" value="<?=$subtotal;?>" />


<input id="subtotal" name="subtotal" type="hidden" value="<?php echo $subtotal; ?>" />

It´s pretty hard for ya to just trow a problem with this complexity and just expect any answer (that is not the source code page, you have to create a phps page or put a <pre> I think between the start and the end of your code </pre>).... but I will help you with the logic that is the first step...

You have to post to the same page and do a error check....

then once you have that working do a...

//or if(!$_POST['navy']){     whatever works best...
if ($_POST['navy']){          
$navyvalue = '10';
$totalvalue = '10';
