How to add the personal title(Mr./Mrs.) to a Name field

I've a name field in a page, where I want to prefix the name with the personal title(Mr/Ms) . Now I use @Name([CN];@Username) for this field. If I change the userid from 'test' to
 'Mr. Test', it will come. But I want to display the same UserID value in some other locations also where only the Common name is needed. I tried all the versions of @Name. Hope it's clear.
Thanks in advance

The gender isn't stored in the id-file, so you would have to retrieve that info from the NAB. I suppose the Mr. or Mrs. you want displayed only, I mean: not to be stored with the user's name? You need the @NameLookup function:
    @NameLookup( [ lookupType ] ; username; itemtoreturn )
and you have to use a Computed for Display field or Computed Text to display the Mr./Mrs. text in front of the user's name.

The names record for the user should store this value.. Look for Title "Personal title" parameter on basic tab of the person record in Domino Directory.

Then use @NameLookup on this field (Title)

Thanks, Hemanth.
It worked! I didn't know the usage of @NameLookup.
Thanks a lot...
