"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In a new field on form just make it text type with computed on compose selected and set default value to be @username

Which email address? And why, if you mean the Internet mail address, because it may change over time, so storing it in a document (I assume you want to have its value in a document) doesn't make too much sense.

The internet email address ( No I do not necessarily want to store it in a document but want it to show up in the form, so customers can email back to the creator of the document.
If the creator is in the notes directory, you could use something like
@namelookup([Exhaustive];@username;"internetaddress) in computed when composed field or
use a the query save event to do the lookup and store the fieldvalue.

I tried your code above but got 3 email addresses as a result. They are all mine but that is not desireable. Is there a way to specify the command that it looks only to one names.nsf? I do not see that option when I check this command on the help file
