Can I use an if type statement or another solution to have the user name pass something different to my SQL database?

Right now, I have an app passing the username into SQL.  However, I am hoping I can somehow use the logged in users name to pass text that I identify based on their username.


Example:  Usernmame Bob Smith - I want Bob Smith to pass, "AgentBobSmith" to SQL.



Super User
Super User

@GeminiWorks you can use this: Concatenate("Agent",Substitute("Bob Smith"," ",""))

Thank you but I need it to pull in the username of the user first and then change it to the name I need assigned.  Does that make sense?  Appreciate the help.

I actually went back in and replaced the "agent" with username and that pulled it in.  But the substitute command is simply adding BobSmith on to the end of the username.  Thoughts?

@GeminiWorks, can you please post your code so I can better understand?

@GeminiWorks, if you want the word Agent to be part of the string you are passing you should use something like this:

Concatenate("Agent",Substitute(User().FullName," ",""))

If you don't need the word "Agent", then simply pass Substitute(User().FullName," ","")

Thank you.  


There is no code currently other than the datacard pulling in username.  What I'm trying to accomplish is to have the username changed to the name I actually want passed into SQL based on the user.


So currently, 


Pulls in actual username.


What I was hoping I could do is, based on the user, I can have a different name passed to match my other databases.


So, if user Bob Smith is logged in, I want it to pass RobertSmith when the form is submitted to SQL.

If user, Joe Thomas is logged in, I want it to pass JosephThomas when the form is submitted to SQL.


I don't mind building all of the variables into the code but I'm not sure this can be done.
