How to show username?

Hi

I'm a very fresh developer for qlikview. actually I can say I know nothing about IT.

Anyway I already developed about 30 sheets for my project.

Now I need to show the user name on sheets with AJAX. The clients want something like 'Welcome, Mr. Lee.'

I heard I can use  'OsUser(), QvUser()'. but I can't really exactly know HOW!!!

And I can't find any relationship between OsUser() and SSO ID correctly.

I just start this job....

Can anybody tell me how very clearly, PLZ!!

or just add a attached qvw file....

OSuser( )

Returns a string containing the name of the current user as returned by the
operating system.

QVuser( )

Returns a string containing the name of the current QlikView user as entered
in a section access.

Hi,

In Text Object try like this

= 'Welcome, ' & QvUser()


QvUser() will get the user name who is accessing the dashboard

Hi,

If you have implemented Section access then the below expression will work

= 'Welcome, ' & QvUser()

or else try the below expression in text object

='Welcome'&' '&OSUser()
