Hi All,

Currently looking to use magento for a project, it looks perfect but struggling with one aspect.

The shop will pretty much sell general items, and combined products. Ive got this set up and working perfectly with product types, custom attributes and grouped products.

We need to be able to have a custom attribute for each product within a group. Unsure if this is possible, heres the basic idea

Grouped product one ->
Item 1
Item 2
Item 3
Item 4
Item 5

We need to add an extra attribute for the items, but only within the group.

Grouped product one ->
Item 1 -> box1
Item 2 -> box2
Item 3 -> box1
Item 4 -> box2
Item 5 -> box2

box1/box2 refers to where the item is going to be packed within the group, so item 1/3 will be in box 1 and 2/4/5 will be in box 2

obviously this changes for each grouped product, we just need to save it on the grouped product and show it on the front end for the location.

Hopefully this is easy enough to understand, any help greatly appreciated
