          Are your usernames inbuilt or using a table?

           

          If they are inbuilt you just need to go to your field picker (filemaker 14) or add to your layout a field, select that "z_innlogget_bruker" field, and drag that field to your header.

            The current user am using now is just created via the manage->security, but in the future the solution would sync users with an external directory.

            I this with a merged field, and nothing is showing? Wrong to use merged field for this ?

              If you just want the actual username, why don't you simply use Insert > Other Symbol... > AccountName?

               

              If for some reason you do need this to be in a field, start by checking that the field actually contains the right value? The auto-enter option you have won't reset the field value each time you log in; you need to script that.
