[Quoted] [Quoted] in forms5.0 pl/sql is there a system variable that contains information about [Quoted] the current user (eg. user id)...or is the only way to use the sql 'select user from dual into v_user;'???

i need a way to check the current users authority on a record.

Also does anyone know of any good security resources/whitepapers/links with regards to the best way of securing a forms application??

Thanks in advance,
