Thanks very much for detailed and informative reply.
I will explain the situation , I have three frames in one page (mymainpage.fwx), one frame in the top of the page, that holds the information about my company, company logo, login button ,logout button. in the left hand side frame I am going to have one tree view menu(I have not got the menu yet, still looking for one). To operate any of the menu item user has to login with a valid user name(Auth.userid) and password, after the successful login the top frame should display the username, it should get refreshed whenever user changes his ID, The third frame in the middle of the page is for the data entry, based on the menu selection(left hand side form).
hope my requirement is clear , pls advice me how can I do that?

What do you mean by "global" variable? Are you referring to a public variable? You should never use public variables to hold user-specific information. Here's some information on this topic:
In this particular case I don't understand why you would even want to store the userid in a variable. If you want, you can simply always use Auth.UserID to display the user id:
The Auth.UserID property is populated in subsequent requests as long as the user remains logged in.

sorry for troubling with this type of silly requirement, pls excuse me, I am a beginner
I am declared one global variable called 'mGuserid' in my main form 'myform.fwx', I am calling Auth.Authenticate function to get user id and stores in to the global variable mGuserid
In myform.fwx I will display the login user name, what I want to do is whenever I change the value of mguserid, 'myform.fwx' should display the latest name
I am displaying the user id in 'myform.fwx' is as follows.
AuthMessage = "User:" +mguserid
<p font color="red" style="font-size: 8pt; font-family: Arial" ><i> <%=AuthMessage%></font></i><p>

The userid is contained in Auth.UserID.
Please refer to the documentation of the Auth object for details on how to use a table to hold your user list. We will be glad to answer specific questions you may have.
