Surveys...grrrr. I am developing a .NET console application that accesses survey data from a single survey list using the MOSS web service "Lists". I am able to enumerate the survey list and get to the items except for the
author of the survey response. When I get to the column ows_Author, it appears to be a lookup value formatted like this: "1066;#JOHN DOE". How can I, using web services alone, lookup the corresponding Windows login ID of that user?
If I go to the survey in SharePoint and click on the name in the view, it takes me to a site-based user profile page that does show the account ID I want. The page that displays appears to be a virtualized page like this "_layouts/userdisp.aspx?ID=1066".
What I really need is JOHN DOE's account ID like "domain\id".
Can I get to this with the data I have available?
