Bad move.

> I added three new columns in the transactions database:
> credit_card_number
> credit_card_exp_month
> credit_card_exp_year
> I then edited the /etc/log_entry and log_transaction files and added the following:
> credit_card_number: [value filter=strip name=mv_credit_card_number]
> credit_card_exp_month: [value filter=strip name=mv_credit_card_exp_month]
> credit_card_exp_year: [value filter=strip name=mv_credit_card_exp_year]    
> After an order occurs, I can see the expiration month and date, but the credit card

Not so. What happens when your system gets cracked? Credit card numbers are
there for the taking.

Once again, I will never help you get an unencrypted credit card number on
displayed. And I hope no one else will.
