While i can see its not the best of solutions, i think (if i can get it woking) it will be sufficient for my needs.
I agree partially. If you are truely creating an outwardly facing "Shopping Cart" style web application that accepts payments for general use, you will want to make sure that your code is solid and stable. The last thing you will want is incorrectly applied
payment processing, or errors in the shopping cart. You could have a real mess.
The good news is that a shopping cart web app is probably almost as old as the web itself (or close to it; you understand the point I am making). Therefore there are a
ton of tutorials and starter kits for creating such a site. I know at this point you do not want to start over, but since this is the 'Architecture' forum I figure I would speak more to the overall design. For speceific code issues with a SQLDataSource
you may want to re-post in the following forum:SQL Server, SQL Server Express, and SqlDataSource Control
