Thanks Jeni

Actually, the all caps ADMIN was just for testing.

It could come in as Admin ADmin ADmiN or anything 
like that.  It comes from user input to a login form.

I ended up using this and it seems to be working, but
I am not sure how efficient it will be.

root/CamUsers[@UserId = translate(@UserId,'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ',
'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz') = 'Admin']

Hi Jay,

So near and yet so far... :)  The translate() function there is
translating all the *uppercase* letters in the UserId to *lowercase*,
whereas you're comparing it with an *uppercase* string.  So it'll
never match.  What you meant was:



   'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz') = 'admin']

I hope that helps,
