$_SESSION 1 Char Limit

Hi,
I have a shopping cart that is added to by clicking on a link. If it's not in the cart already it adds it to a session array and sets the quantity to 1. If it is in the array already it adds 1 to the qunatity.

<?php
session_start();
$voucher = $_GET['voucher'];
if(isset($_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]))
{
   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']=$_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']+1;
}
else
{
   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]=$voucher;
   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']=1;
}
header("Location: giftlist.php?seq=".rand(1000,9999));
?>

Trouble is if they add more than 9 of the same item e.g. quantity is 9 then it goes back to 1. It's as if the array has a 1 int limit. I've tried setting it up using $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']=999; but it just starts at 9.

Help please.

Try something like this
<?php

session_start();

$voucher = $_GET['voucher'];

echo "Sent: ".$voucher."<br/>";

if(isset($_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]))

{

   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty'] += 1;

}

else

{

   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['name'] = $voucher;

   $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty'] = 1;

}

echo "After processing: ";

var_dump($_SESSION['cart']);

echo "<br/>";

?>

Maybe this...
<?php

session_start();

$voucher = $_GET['voucher'];

if(isset($_SESSION['cart'][$voucher])){

 if(isset($_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']))

 {

    $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']++;

 }

 else

 {

    $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']=1;

 }

} 

else

{

  $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]=$voucher;

  $_SESSION['cart'][$voucher]['qty']=1;

}

header("Location: giftlist.php?seq=".rand(1000,9999));

?>
