Hello,

sharepoint seems to be picking up some users names in lowercase and some in uppercase and looking at the user attributes, all i can see is that the pre-windows 2000 username is all lowercase...

any suggestions? InfoPath doesnt see "lucy" as the same as "Lucy" its case sensitive...

Each user has a number of different attributes that are used.
If using ADSIEdit you check the user in question and see what the "true" values are this may help you to understand what's going on.
