I have a customer attribute named "tescoclubcard_number", the attribute is not displayed in customer model whereas is displayed in collection.

Can anyone please let me know how i can save the customer attribute value. To load the customer data i have done below:

$custData = $order->getData();
$custEmail = $custData['customer_email'];
$customer = Mage::getModel("customer/customer");
$data = $customer->loadByEmail($custEmail);

in data i am not getting the attribute "tescoclubcard_number" whereas it is there in collection.

Please let me know how i can save it.


Another problem i am facing is, when i store tescoclubcard_number value in session and complete the payment using sagepay server the session values are destroyed. Is there a way to keep sessions in tact and use them on success page?


You can get the customer attribute value by following:

$customerObj  = Mage::getModel('customer/customer')->load($customer_id);
$attr = $customerObj->getData('tescoclubcard_number');
