With the =[Me] function a list can return domain/username as a default text. Is there a way to return regular name instead? e.g. instead of "aeropoint/jdwyer" it returns "Jeremy Dwyer."

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you’re talking about VB hereafter a simple function that will do it:

<pre>Function PullUserFullname(strUser)
Set User = GetObject(“WinNT://<b>YOURDOMAIN</b>/” & strUser & “,user”)
PullUserFullname = User.Fullname
End Function</pre>
