Convert auth_user to Lower Case & Remove Domain Name

P: 2
Can anyone help me. I have a small set of code that gets the windows user name & sets it into a URL. The URL then passes that to a browser login & logs my users in (this already works). The small problem I am having is I need to convert the username to Lower case & strip out the doamin name, so that I end up with just the raw lowercase indows username. This is what I have so far. I am sure its just my syntax as I have done this before but it was a long time ago.

LCASE() will convert a string to lower case.
MID() will pull a substring out of a string.
INSTR() will find the index of the backslash character in the string.

The other thing that's throwing you off is the response
.Write. That prints the text to the screen, that doesn't help you for a variable assignment. Take out the response.write and the code delimiters, you are already in code so those are no good

  1. username=request.servervariables("auth_user")
rabbit is right, you then need a combination of lcase() and something to whittle the string down. I personally would use instr() (to find the position of the @ or \) and right(str, n) (Gives you the right-most n characters of the string).
