Good day everyone,


I have an interesting question for the form I'm currently working on. I want to display the person occupying a role in a workflow initiation form. Instead of modifying the form each time the person in that role changes, I'd like to perform a lookup on another list to retrieve that person's name.


I'm not having any issues retrieving the information, but the value returned is in [1;#LName, FName] format, but I'd like to get the display name instead. Is this possible or should I just add an extra field in my list to hold their name how I want it displayed?
