Thanks,

Your assumptions were correct, I'll give that a try. 

I ended up doing this which doesn't seem as efficient:

$item_array = array('Mens Ring' => m_r, 
     'Mens Charm' => m_c, 
     'Womens Ring' => w_r,
     'Womens Charm' => w_c
     ); 
    
while (list($val, $key) = each($item_array)){
 if ($key == $item){
 $item_text = $val;
 }
} 
echo $item_text;

Thanks again,

Robert
