I'm making an intranet website and I am making a user specific website that has a login and authentication for each sales rep. I'm new to ASP but I was able to create a membership application with my sql server and visual studios authorization process, I'm trying to figure out how to query all my reports to the sales rep name that logs in. What's the best process to go about this. I've found a bunch of resources to create the login but can't seem to find anything to link a Gridview or other control to the login name.

You can use the Membership.User class to get details of the currently logged in user and then can filter the grid on user name.

as mentioned above ; get the user details and pass them to your grid to filter content or give access based on that user name

I think I'm going about this the wrong way. I found some things on using querystring in the url and then query my gridview to the URL. I found some stuff on C# but I want to use it in VB

If you pass username in query string, anyone can change that.

Ok, Thank you. I ended up making a  class for HttpContext. Seems a lot more secure than just a query string.
