    I'll try and make this clear!

    I want to use Amember to handle login / payments / etc, BUT my main user database (home grown dating type site) is in a separate MySQL DB.

    When a user signs up I need to get them to add their profile in my DB but set the user name to the Amember field "login" and whenever they want to update their profile it calls up the edit table screens with a "select record" based on their Amember user name.

    I can get the user name displayed OK on a test page, so I guess it's not gonna be to tricky!!!

    Thanks in Advance

    Ha! What a GREAT forum (and the helpdesk), think I found the answer myself in:-

    Just Populate the user name form field in my application with

    <input type=text name=amember_login value="{$smarty.request.amember_login}">

    Will report back
