Retrieve USERID in CL Program

Retrieve USERID in CL Program

Retrieve USERID in CL Program

Not sure if this can be done in a CL program or not.  I have no trouble passing the variables to a RPG program.  What I am trying to do is Retrieve the UserID from the AS/400 of the user running the job.  I then try to compare the UserID in the CL to a list of Names.  Depending on the name the CL will execute the proper OVRPRTF.  Here is a snip of what I have done.

DCL VAR(&USERID)   TYPE(*CHAR) LEN(10)  /* User */


IF           (&USERID *EQ 'USER1') THEN(OVRPRTF +       
             LPI(&LPI) CPI(&CPI) OVRFLW(&OVRFLW) +      
             PRTTXT(&PRTTXT) OUTQ(@OUTQLIB/P4V) +       
             FORMTYPE(&FORMS) COPIES(1) HOLD(&HOLD) +   

Is this possible?
