Currently logged in user - selectparameter declaration

I am trying to build an sqldatasource using a parameter which I want set to the currently logged in user's username. Any idea how to declare the parameter in the <SelectParameter> tag? ie, my selectstatement is select *** from *** where username = @username... Maybe even if I could declare it in the codebehind using VB using the Membership methods. I am using .net 2.0...

asp classic:
Function GetUserName()
      Dim domain_user
      if Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER") = "" then
            domain_user = split( "Blah\Admin Must Disable Anonymous Access", "\" )
            domain_user = split(Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER"),"\")
      end if
      GetUserName = domain_user(1)
End Function

.net?  really should take the time to learn that.
"SELECT * FROM tblUsers WHERE user_Name = '" + strUserName + "'"

Where tblUsers is the users' table,
Where user_Name is the username field in the users' table,
Where strUserName is the variable holding the username.

>Function GetUserName()
>     Dim domain_user
>     if Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER") = "" then
>          domain_user = split( "Blah\Admin Must Disable Anonymous Access", "\" )
>     else
>          domain_user = split(Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER"),"\")
>     end if
>     GetUserName = domain_user(1)
>End Function

then your connection.source would be :

"SELECT * FROM tblUsers WHERE user_Name = '" + GetUserName() + "'"
