Hi all, I'm having a problem on an ASP page getting a SQL SELECT statement to work. Basically what I'm trying to accomplish is this...I have a hidden form field on this page that is prepopulated with the users name. I need the SQL SELECT statement to use the value of the hidden field in the WHERE UserName =. I used Javascript to get the username to populate without the DOMAIN\ in the front, but I'm not stuck on using Javascript, if there is another way I can do this I am more than willing but it is a must that I get just the username without the DOMAIN\. I've tried every suggestion I can find to do this but havent come up with a solution. Any help would be appreciated. I will post the code from the asp page. Thanks in advance.

PS - I'm using Dreamweaver CS3 if it make a difference.

Looking at your code , this is what I would do

Replace the following line

PrevPunches_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT UserName, PunchTime, LateComment FROM dbo.Punch WHERE UserName = hiddenField ORDER BY PunchTime DESC";

with

PrevPunches_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT UserName, PunchTime, LateComment FROM dbo.Punch WHERE UserName = REPLACE(hiddenfield 'DOMAIN\','') ORDER BY PunchTime DESC";

========================================================
But that original line looks wrong to me in the 1st place -  the hiddenfield part doesn't look like it's referencing the asp/javascript variable. I would have said the original line should be something like ...

1) PrevPunches_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT UserName, PunchTime, LateComment FROM dbo.Punch WHERE UserName = '" & String(Request.Form("hiddenField")) & "' ORDER BY PunchTime DESC";

or maybe

2) PrevPunches_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT UserName, PunchTime, LateComment FROM dbo.Punch WHERE UserName = '" & PrevPunches__MMColParam & "' ORDER BY PunchTime DESC";

And from there you could make it Replace(String(Request.Form("hiddenField")),"DOMAIN\","") or Replace(String(Request.Form("hiddenField")),"DOMAIN\","") etc.  Or even use a split command.

I was going about this totally the wrong way. I needed to use GET instead of POST to be able to use the variable. Thanks for trying to help though. Much appreciated.
