Remove Domain from: ServerVariables("REMOTE_USER")

Hi All,

Is there anyway the domain name can be removed from Requets.ServerVariables("REMOTE_USER")?

At the moment, it comes up DOMAIN\MyName - where I just want it to say MyName

Many Thanks

Hi powelt1,

No, because this is supplied by the client. You can easily trim it out though:

CurrentUser = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_USER")
CurrentUser = Mid(CurrentUser,Instr(CurrentUser,"\")+1)

Tim Cottee,

Thanks for your reply.

So how would I get the information into this textbox?

<input name="CreatedBy" type="hidden" id="CreatedBy" value="<%= Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_USER") %>">
