I have a question about an application i'm going to create but haven't yet. I will have 5 tables with 1 table being the main table and having a relation to the others based on the PK from the main table.

I was wondering what the best method would be for me to create an application that has 5 sections of data to collect with all data going to different tables in my DB.

Depends on the context of your application. Our comments would be more useful if you describe your application context in detail. You could use datasets and datatableadapters to ease the updating of the database.

The tables structure is listed above. I do plan on using DataSets with DataTables and DataAdapters. I'm just looking for some type of blueprint how i'm going to have a user fill out data on section 1 going to table 1 and then have on the same session submit data to different tables based upon the page there on.

If its a wizard like data entry then you can use multiple pages to enter data to each table. You can keep track of existing information entered at previous stages through the session. Or you could use a single page to add information if its not wizard type.

I would like to use the ASP.NET wizard type interface/functionality. However i'm not sure nor have i seen any tutorials that show how to insert data into DB at the end and also how to use the wizard by inserting data into different tables on each wizard step. How do you relate the data to each table based on the first entry with the Primary Key.

You have to define a dataset in memory and add relationships to it. Then you would add data to the dataset during the wizards and commit the data to the db at the end. OR if you are using the identity column in primary key then you have to save that before you can save any data into child tables.

Yeah i was thinking of using the identity. However, how would i use that once i finish step 1 for say, before going to step 2 and how would i be able to relate step 2 to step1?

What method would you choose?

You have to save to table 1 in step 1 and retrieve the primary key. In the later steps, you would use that key to add data to child tables.

i thought if you use a Wizard Control that you have to submit all results at the very end. How do you submit results in Step2, 3, and 4 and then what about the final step?

Can you provide me an example of how i would retrieve the identity id after step1. I would define a DataTable probally for each step.
