Category: Get

Syntax: Get ( UserName )

Parameters: None

Data type returned: Text


Returns the username that has been established for the current user's copy of FileMaker Pro. This username is specified on the General tab of the Preferences dialog and can be set to return either the system name or a custom name.

The returned name is the same for anyone opening any database on the machine, regardless of what account name and password they've used. It's an application-level setting, not a document-level setting. The username can always be manually changed, regardless of whatever security you've set up. For these reasons we recommend against using it.

For greater security, use Get (AccountName) to track and manage user access; a user cannot change the account name used to log in to a database file.




Get (UserName)

Returns Delilah Bean when the user-specified name is "Delilah Bean."
