I would like to backload the personal information of my web users in a sql server 2005 database.  I want the users to be able create their own username and passwords and associate the user with the appropriate data.

The way I've thought about solving this problem would be to assign the web users users a unique 5 digit number.  I will in their personal information in the database, with this number, and then send them this number.  When they come to the website they can put in this number which will link them to their information.  They will then be prompted to put in their own username, password ect.

Does this sound like a good system?  I have no idea how to actually implement this...I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on how to create this.  Specifically, on the second step of the CreateUserWizard, how to load their "personal information" based on the data that I've put in so they can verify it and finish creating the user.  I hope that this makes sense.
