Title

Get (AccountName) in calculated field...

Post

I want a field to show the User Name that the person signed in with.

 

I created a new field and slap it on a layout...

I define the field as a needing a calculated result.

 

I put in the calculation

 

Get (AccountName)

[The account name signed in with is mccarverrd, so I'm expecting it to say "mccarverd" in the field... BUT 

 

And what is my result?  Sometimes it yields "AccountName" and sometimes it yields "777."

 

I'd be much obliged if someone can explain my faulty logic...
