I've been toying with the idea of having a seperate table for userID's. Apparently there is code that will generate a userID on the web page (as a hidden field) and then insert it into each table. The problem is is that I'm not sure where this code goes. I'm using an Access2000 database with win2000 server. I have the connection code put into a separate file called databaseconnect.asp and then it's included in the pages I create. Can anyone help? I have sample code if your interested.
