i have a grid (see below)  and want to add those items on click event to a temp table.  
it works kinda like a shopping cart.  is there a good way to do this in asp.net 2.0 ???
or should i create a table and store items??

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                    BackColor="White" BorderColor="White" BorderStyle="Ridge" BorderWidth="2px"
                    CellPadding="3" CellSpacing="1" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1"
                    GridLines="None" EmptyDataText="No options available">
                    <RowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="Black" />
                    <Columns>
                        <asp:BoundField DataField="itemdescription" HeaderText="Item"
                            ReadOnly="True"  />
                        <asp:BoundField DataField="price" DataFormatString="{0:c}" HeaderText="Price"
                            HtmlEncode="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="price" />
                            <asp:TemplateField><ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl="images/tabs/configurator/addItems.jpg" /></ItemTemplate></asp:TemplateField>
                    </Columns>
                    <FooterStyle BackColor="#C6C3C6" ForeColor="Black" />
                    <PagerStyle BackColor="#C6C3C6" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalAlign="Right" />
                    <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#9471DE" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                    <HeaderStyle BackColor="#FE8330" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#E7E7FF" />

You can opt to use a Datacache object and save that information in it and give it a name that is user specific

can you show me example???
need direction.  
the project i am working on is a configurator.  
once you get a product , you can add options (in this case the grid will have the options)  each option has a price and you will add/delete.  at the end you can generate quote based on all options and after that then i can add all the items into my database because they have been approved.

You'll need a function BindData() that will contain the following code (keep in mind that this is pseudo code):

Define a new DataSet and name it let's say ds1 (Dim ds1 as new DataSet)
 
If (Cache["DataSet"] is NULL) Then
  gv.datasource = ds1
  gv.databind()
 ELSE
  gv.datasrouce = Cache["DataSet"]
  gv.databind()
 Endif
 
 Then, you need to create the Add, delete, and update functionalities to the gridview so that it would save it in the gridview
 And, somewhere on that same page, you would put a button that would say "Save" or "Commit" that would take the Cache["DataSet"] object and would save it back to the Database.
