I'm obviously missing something, after 2 weeks of fiddling and
scouring the manual, I haven't gotten past the most basic
steps...which as a professional developer is obviously

I've got SalesCart Pro 5 installed, FrontPage, created a new
website, add Product Link. I fill in a part number and a
description and price, click OK.

Now, I recognize I'm actually just adding a link. do I
add the actual product? I'm assuming that the products are
stored in shop.mdb, but the modification date isn't changing (I
don't have MS Access so I can't open it to look at it). But in
looking at the asp code in the cgi-bin folder, it looks like it
actually keeps products in product.db? At what point/how does
this get created?

Why is it when I add a product link I get a little icon that says
"SalesCart Component View On WebServer" and its code is <!--
webbot bot="shopadd" description="Light Bulb" units

By default your products are not stored anywhere but the product page that you're working on. And the code above is what stores the product information when you add a product link.

What you see in FrontPage is a "place holder" for the Quantity graphic, text box and the add to cart button.

The code above is actually incomplete. You should go to FrontPage > tools > recalculate hyperlinks to ensure that your code is up-to-date.
