    Which membership provider are you using? I wasn't aware that ASP.NET hashes usernames, only passwords.

    Well, the web administration tool says I'm using a "Custom Provider" for the membership. Not too sure why... but in my aspnet_Membership table there is only a "UserID" field that could possibly be considered being my users' Usernames. I thought that this was the GUID, but when I couldnt find a field with the username in the table, it dawned on me that maybe "Application ID" was the GUID.

    Anyhow, I need to be able to update the Email field and dont know how. I figured if i could use the username as an indicator, it would work.... but it's hashed.

    The username is in the aspnet_Users table (in clear text). The simplest way to update a user's information is to use the UpdateUser method of the Membership API: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...pdateuser.aspx .
