"Logged in as "

"Logged in as " & get (AccountName)


This should be a no brainer for someone out there! I have a global calculation field called AccountName, defined as the function:

get (AccountName)

I have a merge field on my layout that says:

You are currently logged in as <<AccountName>>


Why doesn't this work? When I log in as another user, it displays my account name until I create a new record. I've tried making it a text field with an auto-enter calculation...

Basically, how can I display in real time which user account is logged in at a given point in time? Can I do it using just a field, or do I have to run a script on layout enter to get the value and set the field???
