connecting ASPNETDB.MDF to an E-commerce Cart
I'm trying to figure out how to associate users in my ASPNETDB.MDF to create a shopping cart.
IE: I have 3 tables, for a list of existing orders, list of products, and list of specific orders.
The idea is for users who've signed up with the built-in user creation control, can then place orders from the shopping cart, and view their existing previous orders. This would normally be done with a unique UserID # to associate orders with specific users, however I don't BELIEVE there's anything like UserID's associated with each user in the ASPNETDB.MDF, it just uses usernames as the unique identifiers right?
Anyway I'm not sure I'm explaining what I'm trying to do perfectly and I apologize, but I don't think it's an un-common problem I'm having. Basically I'm trying to avoid having to have existing ASPNETDB users create a sort of SECOND user that would associate them into a seperate Customers table, it seems like extra user steps that shouldn't be necessary.
