Please send me the presentation and code.

I am planning to use LINQ to SQL in one of my projects that I am working on. I have a question. First, let me give a brief introduction of the project.

The project deals with collecting information from the user (7 master tables and 15 look up tables), basically has 8 screens. The information has to be collected in 7 objects(master tables) and serialized as I page from screen to screen. I am planning to store the serialized objects in the database. The question is with LINQ to SQL, is it possible to stack the 7 objects, put in a generic collection (list) and serialize as I page through the screens?

Once I reach the final screen, my goal is to dump the information from the 7 objects (unserialized at the final point) to the 7 master tables using LINQ to SQL. Will this work?

I am not sure I understand what you are tyring to do, but there is a serialization option, but for WCF.
You maybe able to do this with this capability, but have some work to do. I know Plinqo can attach and detach, that is a code smith library that adds some features as I mentioned in presentation. Hope this helps.

After rereading your email, yes you can do this, just attach the objext at to the correct data context object.
