Thanks, Imar, I thought that might be a problem. Yes they provide connection string information, but again, they require you to create the tables, roles, etc manually. I guess there's no other way around it, but I'll see if they'll let me copy the tables, roles, etc over.

Right back atcha,

These two areas (connection string and tables) don't have to be related. You can use their connection string and then create the table in a way that works for you, either:

a) running aspnet_regsql if you can access their SQL Server from your machine

b) Manually running the SQL scripts necessary for the application services (take a look in the folder C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\VersionNumber)

c) Using the publishing wizard as explained in the book

d) Using import / export in SQL Server (again, if you can access SQL Server remotely).

In other words: lots of alternatives, and certainly no need to manually create tables, views and stored procedures.

Default It's working for us now

Hey, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. We ended up hosting our own website. It was a lot easier that way. Thanks for the help
