1. Got a project to create web-based application to allow user enter information for car insurance quote, it will have over 200+ parameters that we need to save like address, car information, total driver count...and etc., and they all need to be saved into the database.
Instead of create 200+ fields in the table, do any experts have any other / better solution?

2. The application involve at least 5 steps to complete the quote, do any experts know any better asp.net form generator that we can code instead of using asp.net wizard or panel?
remember we have to allow client update the original information as well. we hope to use same UI to avoid extra coding.

Thanks

You have asked a very broad question. In DB you should seggregate field in terms of mutliplicity (like one can have multiple phones), atomicity (like address), how many times filed will be updated, what all fields are frequently read , what fields are read in group. Only then they can be put in different tables
If data is expected to be large in nature consider partioning table.

Use wizard or simple page, it will not make much difference, you have to group your information to be shown in single page and track on which page currently user is. Also take care of transaction, either you will allow user to submit half filled form, or you need to them to fill all infor in one go.
