Hi everyone. I'm Looking for a shopping cart code. Is there an easy way to make it. I have made simple forms and tables and the post and action on forms but can't get the orders on different page.

It's very hard to define a "shopping cart code". At that level of complexity, it's more or less software.
I suggest looking on google and possibly paying for something because you will be handling money with this, so having strong software to support your site is a good idea.
For a smaller site, consider using paypal.
On a bigger scale than just the shopping cart, how do you expect your users to pay? If it's something like paypal, a simple shopping cart is fine. If you want to host the payment yourself, it gets a lot more complex and you will need to do a lot more, such as "placing" (storing into a database, etc) orders.
In short, it's very possible to make this, but it's not easy. Without experience coding in a serverside language, the only easy way is to just buy/find some software that will do this for you. There's lots out there, though I'm not sure of a specific one to recommend-- it probably depends on your purposes.

use Zen Cart (http://www.zen-cart.com/). Its free, easily installed. The set up is a little difficult, but there are step by step docs (http://www.zen-cart.com/forum/showthread.php?t=37835) on the site to get you set up. It has thousands of features, but you only need to use the ones you need to use. It works, its easy (after the initial install) and it integrates with your paypal account.
I have used it on many many sites and it has never failed.
