Thank you in advance

RE: user name is not unique

probably need to move to an intermediate variable. Or move spaces/zeros to positions 5 to end. Or Trim it.

RE: user name is not unique


I use these kind of moves all the time for shifting operations and complex initializing of tables, so I don't see any trouble here. Perhaps there is somewhere an other variable with the same name?

Which compiler do you use?

Perhaps you can show the whole program?
