I don't think you want to use purgechar, even if it happens to be working for you. It isn't just removing the server name. It's removing all the CHARACTERS in the server name. So if your server name is 'Server3' and you have users 'Bob', 'Bill' and 'Beth', you'll get the following:

User purgechar(osuser(),'Server3\')
Bob Bob
Bill Bill
Beth Bth

What happened to Beth's user ID? Well, 'e' is one of the characters in 'Server3\', so it got purged. So if you check for purgechar(osuser(),'Server3\')='Beth', it won't be true, even when Beth IS the user.

Lots of other ways to do it, though. I'd probably use this:

subfield(osuser(),'\',2) = 'Beth'

And QlikView function names appear to be caps insensitive, so you shouldn't need to capitalize the S in OSUser, or any other character in it.

Before trying anything else, please verify the document properties:

Settings-->Document Properties-->Security Tab: Show All Sheets and Objects.

If this check box is selected, all objects/sheets are shown, even if a condition is defined.

When this checkbox is cleared, you can see the effect of the condition written.
