Display the name of the person who creates (prints) the report

I have designed a report 'template' for other people to use.

I would like a field in the report which displays the name of the person who uses the report template to display data from the database.

The field in the Special Fields drop down menu called 'file author' does not work.

Can anyone suggest what I should use?

    Try inserting one text object stating "Designed by XXXX" at the footer before creating a template so that when ever the template is used for a report the text object will be printed with that Description

    If you're using BO, then the Current User thing is good. If not, create a parameter

    for the user to enter their name. Pass this to a formula to be printed on the report.
