How to pass current user to bdc list to filter data

  Asked By: Julianne    Date: Sep 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4509

I have a bdc list which I want to load on the basis of the currently logged in user. I've tried to use the Current User Filter Web Part provided OOB but it doesn't seem to solve the problem cu'z I can't bind the current user value of the webpart to any column of the bdc list.

The problem is, I want to load the records based on the current user by passing the user name to Stored Procedure. Does any one know how to do that ?

In current  User filter  Web Part, instead of selecting send filter values , select send query values. This might solve  your problem.

Otherwise if you are comfortable playing with XSLT, create DVWP with BDC as its data  source and create a current user  parameter in it. Then assign this parameter as input to you BDC data source using XSLT.
