Default How do I store user login info to use in a form?

I'm not sure how to call the user info, so that I can use in a form!

User log's on and when entering data in one of the form pages I would like to have his user info come up and store in the database along with data thats entered?

and will this work with multiple login by user in an intrant?

I think you are after session variables!
For example to store the users name in a session variable when they log in use:

session("userName") = rs("userName")

where rs is the record set you are checking the name and password against.
To display the user name from a session variable you only have to

<%= session("userName")%>

If this does not answer your question, please give us some more information.
