How do I use the user’s login name in a Condition
2 July, 2015
I am trying to create a View where I want to apply a Condition to the data selected from a Table.
The Condition needs to use the current User's ID, as I want the data returned by the View only to contain records that are directly related to the User, and I do have the User's information in a field in the table I am extracting data from.

You can do that with a source filter against the datasource.
When you create the source filter, you can use a SQL Query to populate the list of possible user id's:
