OK, Thanks got it now. Up too late last night when I first read all this.
I didn't pay enough attention to the requirements for Dynamic Drop Downs for Stock by Attributes. Now will I have to uninstall the Dynamic Drop Downs for Stock by Attributes, install the stock by attributes and re-install the Dynamic Drop Downs for Stock by Attributes? Or can I simply install the Stock by attributes?
I am attempting to install Stock By Attributes. In in the install instructions it says to
"Prepare the package for upload to your server by renaming the following folders to match your template name: includes/modules/YOUR_TEMPLATE and includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE."
I do not see a folder includes/modules/YOUR_TEMPLATE. I did find includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE and have changed it. The only file in the package under includes/templates is pages. I do have a file in includes/modules for my template can I simply place the pages folder there? Sorry but I am very new to this.
It looks like I have Products with attributes installed. Not sure if it works yet. Time for a Break !!! I will read its operational instructions after and test it then re-install Dynamic Drop Downs for products with attributes.
P.S. I just put the pages folder in includes/modules/YOUR_TEMPLATE folder.

You all should read through the Dynamic Dropdowns support thread.. You will see that the module DOES NOT work, and the mod author appears to no longer be supporting it..
Thank You for the information. I can stop trying to get it to work now. It seems like it would save time if said on download that it doesn't work.

You can certainly upload an update to the module that lets people know it doesn't work.. The modules like the application are all built and maintained by volunteers so it's unlikely that the module will be updated with this data unless the community takes the initiative to do so.. That's why it's always strongly recommended that you backup before installing.. I personally recommend building a test store to test modules before applying them to your live shop.. Gives you an opportunity to test things out to see how/if they work..
I always build tests for the website. Even when only adding pages. I would rather do that and check it than have someone go the site and have something not work or not work as I intended it to.
It appears that this is going to take a LONG time to set up go get close to what I want.
The website is for a Trailer Sales and Manufacturer. The Shopping cart will be used to give the visitor a price estimate for the trailer they are considering purchasing. There are many types and models of trailers. Each in various lengths with optional equipment. Some of the Optional equipment is price by the foot according to the length of the trailer. While other options can be purchased in multiples e.g. 4" D Rings for tie downs.
I looks likes without something like the dependent attributes it will take a while to get something that is functional and as clean as I would like.
Once again Thank You for keeping me from wasting more time on something that doesn't work.
I'm all of a sudden getting this as well.
This happened right after I installed the dynamic dropdowns for stock by attibutes 1.3.4.
1146 Table 'klkrefle_zen.TABLE_PRODUCTS_STOCK' doesn't exist
[SELECT quantity FROM TABLE_PRODUCTS_STOCK AS a LEFT JOIN products_attributes AS b ON (b.options_id=1 AND b.options_values_id=5) WHERE a.products_id = '4' AND a.stock_attributes = b.products_attributes_id AND a.quantity > 0 order by b.products_options_sort_order]
My site is http://www.klkreflectiveimages.com/zen
I have already installed Stock By Attributes and it is running fine.
I've followed all of the steps from the above posts, but nothing is working.
Please help... I'm dead in the water
