Only show records based on the user that has logged in (User.Identity.Name)

I have a webap using VS2005 and the DB is SQL2005.  I have a webform with a formview and gridview control that allows me to enter records and I use the following two sections of code to capture the username of the individual logged in when I am addeding or updating a existing record using a basic SQLdatasource that select all fields in atable.

Problem: WHen I login to the application to edit the records I worked on using the gridview or fromview control how do I configure the SQLdatasource to only populate the formview or gridviewcontrol with only the records that match the name of the loged in user?  I have tried  "SELECT * FROM TABLE WHERE Username = @Username" and no luck.

Thank you,


Protected Sub FormView1_ItemInserting(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.FormViewInsertEventArgs) Handles FormView1.ItemInserting 
sqldsCategory.InsertParameters( "UserName").DefaultValue = User.Identity.Name
End Sub 
Protected Sub ASPxGridView1_RowUpdating(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As DevExpress.Web.Data.ASPxDataUpdatingEventArgs) Handles ASPxGridView1.RowUpdating 
sqldsCategory.UpdateParameters("RecordModifier").DefaultValue = User.Identity.Name
End Sub

Add SelectParamter to your SqlDataSource and use onSelecting Event as below:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
            ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:YourConnectionString %>"
            SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [yourTable] where UserName=@UserName"
                <asp:Parameter Name="UserName" />

Add value to this parameter in codebehind:

Protected Sub SqlDataSource1_Selecting(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs)
    e.Command.Parameters("@UserName").Value = User.Identity.Name
End Sub
