How to use the Profile other than default


Peter Afonin


I'm making another attempt to find out how to use a different profile in the
web application. I though it would be quite simple. but couldn't find an
answer anywhere.

All I need to know is how to call "i90ProfileProvider" instead of default
"i90PartnerProfileProvider" in C# or VB.

<profile defaultProvider="i90PartnerProfileProvider">
<add name="i90PartnerProfileProvider"
<add name="i90ProfileProvider"
type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" connectionStringName="i90"/>


There must be the way to do this. For user it works just fine:

MembershipUser user=

If there is a way to add a name for Profile Provider in web.config, then
there must be a way to use it.

Or I should do something entirely different to retrieve the user profile
form another database?

I would appreciate your help very much.

Thank you.
