I wanted to expand the amount of information that is associated with each user(MembershipUser) in the ASPNETDB.MDF database file. Adding columns like FirstName, LastName, etc. So I began implementing my own custom Membership Provider. I created a derived MembershipUser class with the extra private variables that I wanted each MembershipUser record to store. Its basically done. Almost after I did this I stumbled across the columns in the ASPNETDB.MDF->aspnet_Profile table called "PropertyNames" and "PropertyValuesString". Could I have simply used these two columns to accomplish what I was attempting to do or are these columns for global application configuration settings?
Is the aspnet_Profile table purpose to store expanded/related information about users such as personal information? Or is it for something else? Thanks.
