CurrentUser() Function in WebI

All -

In WebI there is a function, CurrentUser() which will return the ID of the user running the report. For example, if In the CMC I have the following information per user

ID: nvincent

Name: Nyrvole Vincent

CurrentUser() is returning nvincent but we need a function that will return "Nyrvole Vincent". Does anyone know what function we can use to support this requirement?

thanks,

Nyrvole

    I don't think so it is possible, directly.

    CurrentUser() retrieves the UserName, which used to log-in Infoview portal.

    Work Around:

    You have do it manually at report.

    Create variable & definition:

    =If(CurrentUser()="Admionistrator" then "ABC-XYZ" elseif(CU()="nvincet" then "Nyrvole Vincet" etc...

    Thank You!!

      @ Universe: What you said is correct. 
      At the same time it will show the Account name not Full Name (which is enlisted or not in CMC at the time of User creation.)

      It doesn't look like you read my post in it's entirety. I did mention the following:

      "So, one could change the Account Name of every user to be their full name..."
