I was just curious if anyone had any input on this. I was thinking of using the recordset.save method to save a shopping cart&#039s contents out to an xml file in stead of saving them to a database. The using the open method to retrieve that cart. Has anyone done this? The reason that I am thinking of doing this is to save database lookups for more important and bigger stuff. Also, I was thinking that this may also increase the performance of the cart, and decrease the performance on the web server. Anyone have any thoughts on this one?
