Hello once again,
My last question concerns (temporary) tables. In a web form (VWD Express, Asp,Net 2.0, VB
, .mdf db, Ajax) I have two gridviews. One gets its data from textboxes and dropdownlists as the user clicks an ok button. This data is then sent to a "junk" table in the db. The other gridview retrieves this data "automatically" and displays the data, filtered and grouped by some SQL statements. When the user finally clicks an Insert record button, the data from this second gridview gets inserted in another table in the db and the data from the first "junk" table is disposed.
I guess it shouldn't be necessary to insert, retrieve, and delete the data in and from the "junk" table. Even though it does work like a charm, I guess it would be better if I could do it with some kind of "temporary table", array or the like so that the db wouldn't need to be updated to this extent. Still, I really like the simplicity of using gridviews and the rest of the page's code is complex enough, so I don't really want to substitute this behaviour for tons of hand-written, hard-to-follow, and hard-to-integrate code.
What are my options? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
