I have a straight, single line text field that Contains user names (and that cannot be changed)

I would like to create a view personalized for each user to view their requests.

How can I do this? Can I do it in SharePoint Designer?

awesome.

So I can just use the last link, correct? creted a filter where Submitter = [Me]

- where submitter is actually = to the Full name and not domain\username, correct?

This is was the solution I was hoping to use from Laura Rogers, but received errors:

The problem might be becuase of the following reasons :-

1) You wanted to access a list but its contenttypes were not deployed.
2) A type attribute is needed at the value element in the where clause of your query running at the List.asmx
3) There is a problem with the view on your list.

You can create a new site and new list to test the above functionality.

Ah. What a pain!

It's actually a doc library with a custom content type. So even though I uploaded my template it's not enough? I have to further deploy it as described in the post below?

But back to your solutions...
I can use this by itself, correct?

do I still use '[Me]'?

Can you post the syntax?

Thanks!

In SharePoint desginer, I converted the view.

I created a parameter:
LogonUser = Server Variable = LOGON_USER

I added the xpath filter:
[contains(@Submitter,$LogonUser)]

But it doesn't return a thing...
