Hello,
I'm trying to create a report that displays data based on the user's login. I'm using WinNt integrated security but i can't seem to display the current logged on user. It keeps displaying the nt account i use to manage the sql server.

I've tried:
select system_user as userid
also tried
select SUSER_SNAME()

none seem to work.  any ideas?

Select select system_user returns the user that made the connection to SQL Server, as does select SUSER_SNAME().

It should not return any information than that.

Which login are you referring to?

I'm trying to return the user that is logged to the network using his/her machine.

Reporting server is problably connecting using a different user so that is why the value you want is not being returned.

There is no TSQL command to get the actual login name in that situation.
