How to add/update an ASP.NET membership user profile?

I am developing an admin interface that allow an admin user to create a number of user accounts (using ASP.NET Membership) and specify profile information for each user, e.g. first name, last name, client name, etc. I have been experimenting with the SqlTableProfileProvider, since this creates separate fields in a database table.  

However, when I am creating the profile and assign values to the profile using, e.g. Profile.FirstName it is setting my profile information, i.e. the current logged in user.

How do I add/update profile information for a user account?  The user will also update sectios of their profile, but the admin needs to be able to update all user profiles.

Thanks.

You can use ProfileBase.Create method to get the Profile of other users.

For e.g:

MyCustomProfile myProfile = (MyCustomProfile)ProfileBase.Create("username");
myProfile.ZipCode = "98052";
myProfile.Save();

What said kris_pe is correct you will need to create profile manually but here is an example which does same using CUW:
http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/10/18/427754.aspx

It uses ProfileCommane class:

ProfileCommon p = (ProfileCommon) ProfileCommon.Create(username);
p.FirstName="FirstName";
p.Save();

Because I am using SqlTableProfileProvider I ended up writing my own update queries to update the database table.
