Thanks for ur response. But it has become quiet a bit difficult to serach in this new forum ! I tried to search with the keywords ( Login user ....) and tried to get discussions..but it would never retun any post from workbench when I try to filter the search..
I have created a two variables and two text fields in my render service called userIDname and testValue. when I render the form for the first time the userIDname gets prepopulated which is fine. when I go to the next stage I want the testValue to be populated with the second stages users value...if I furthur to the third stage the testValue should have the user who logged in the third stage.
So what I have done is I have added another setvalue (which goes to the second time route) to the render service and said - processdata/xmldata/fform/testValue = processdata/currentuser (current user is the variable) .
I get the same value always (originator valuve) irrespective of which stage i am in ..in the testValue box. but what I need is the current user info.
