Thank you for the response and thanks for the advice on using single
What does not work is that it returns nothing.
If I don't use the interpolate=1 and change the tag to:
[perl table='delivery_schedule' interpolate=1]
$Tag->data("transactions", "order_number", "[loop-data transactions
I get something returned. To clarify, I use
"transactions","order_number" just to test
the results and use of the tag. The interpolate is not necessary, at
least in the test
above. I think, according to my research/reading of documentation,
it does not work because of something to do with delivery_schedule table
custom table and the data tag wants to work with product tables or
Just a stab at what I can see so far.
