Hi All,

I am storing user ids in a table.  In order to retrieve a name, I look that up based on the ID.  
I have 2 ids.  One that is saved, one for the user who is currently filling the form.  I tried invoking the components and changing one of the returnvariable to something say something else, to distinguish the 2, but am getting the same value in both fields.  When I load 1 and comment out the other, info is fine.  What can I do, to distiinguish both of these and get my data on my form?
