$_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));
?>
