Accessing Username, password, roles in xml file

  

Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config.  I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).

Here is what my web.config section looks like:

 

<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".Administration"
            loginUrl="~/SiteAdmin/Default.aspx"
            defaultUrl="~/SiteAdmin/Administration/Default.aspx"
            protection="All"
            timeout="30"
            path="/"
            requireSSL="false"
            slidingExpiration="true"
       &n

How to setup db diagram to automatically insert username into table?

  
 I have a table setup in the database for users who are basically going to create a classified listing.  How can I setup a diagram that would easily create a table relationship with the Users table, so that it automatically inserts the users username when they submit a new ad?  If so, how?  I've tried adding a UserName row to my table and creating a relationship with the Users table "UserName" row, but it wasn't accepting the relationship when I tried to save the diagram...apparently because the UserName row in the Users table isn't a primary key?Also, one this is setup, what's the best way to provide the user a way to see a list of their ads and have the ability to edit them?

"The username is invalid. The account must be a valid domain account."

Using UserName to enable disable access to InfoPath form fields

  
Hi Everyone, I have created a browser enable form in InfoPath and restrict certain fields depending on the official logged on User Name. Now this works most of the time but my problem has to do with the "case" of User Names for some of the site users. In most cases the User Name is an exact match but for some reason, some user's names are reported by SharePoint (the Welcome at top of screen) with some parts captilized. Example - my hidden filed on the form reports my user name as xrs_master but the Welcome up top says XRS_Master - and the fields act as though I am not the correct user and won't enable. On the other hand there are users who's user name matches the case exactly and all works fine. Why is SharePoint reporting the user name differently? And if this is the reason they don't match, how do I fix it? Any Ideas? Many thanks in advance for help!
