Default Need Help with asp Membership


I want to use .nets built in membership stuff to hold on the user information and do all that nice stuff so I don't have to make a table for it in my database.

However Some of the databases I am making need user information. So How do I connect my database to there database?

Like I see when I went to the Asp.net configuration button after a new database was created called ASPNETDB.MDF I have a database
called Japanese.mdf.

What I really need is to get like the userID but some people have been telling me to use GUIDS but I don't know what this is or how to use it.

unfortunately I have not gotten a response back yet so I was hoping if anyone knew how to do this.

This is a blurb of what this person was saying I should do.

quote:If you use the Asp.net Membership schema, the database will be automatically created and it creates GUIDS for each user etc..

Now you could save each link..linked with a GUID and that way you maintain a relationship with existing schema, thats the way you utilize the existing asp.net membership schema.
Also here is a picture of how my database looks like. Just pretend that the USER table is the the table(s) from the asp.net membership.
