Is there any idea about how to insert our sql command through magento ?
What I do now is to add new table and insert new eav_entity_type row and there is no way to execute the sql command manually. I don’t want to create table or insert new row at phpmyadmin. Can magento does it ?
I am doing a new step of checkout, and new a new table for it also a new entity for eav_entity_type table. Just because I need to save the information to sales_quote and sales_order then I think that I need it.
I would probably consider doing that with the “module creator” which gives you some pre-defined patterns.
The trick is that because of the EAV model, you cannot do direct sql excect for some tables (eg, eav_attribute_option_value).
More prcisely, you can… but it is a nightmare and you would be in a better situation if using the standrad methods
