Auto enter location based on log in


I am creating a database the will be installed in many locations. Each location may have a couple of users. What I would like to do is when a user creates a record it records the name (this can be done in auto enter data>creation>account name). Is there a way to connect this to a location?

Example Alex is from Naples. When she logs in and creates an record, she gets recorded in created by and location Naples. Judy is from Paris, she creates a record and it gets recorded created by Judy and location Paris. This is needed for the search and for reports. I know it could be searched by the login name, but when printed we don't always want to see the name of the user we want the location. So how do I auto log the location of the user based on the user name?I am sure it can be done easly but i just can't see it. Thank you in advance. (using Filemaker 10  and Windows Vista)
