I have created a custom list with 3 columns, when I add a edit an item of this list I can see created by and modified by details at the end of the form. I want to display just modified by value at some other place in the same form. I am able to display modified date using formula [Modified], but not able to get modified by. Please help. Thanks.

Internal name of field Modified By is Editor. Did you try to use [Editor] in your formula? (since [Modified] is working) – Vedran Rasol May 29 '12 at 12:06
Does not work :( – NotesArt May 29 '12 at 15:12

I had the same problem you did with the "Modified By" (@Editor) field not showing up on my customized edit form. Following the example from this post, I was able to get the "Modified By" value to display on my edit form by adding the following markup:

<SharePoint:CreatedModifiedInfo ControlMode="Display" runat="server">
        <SharePoint:FieldValue FieldName="Editor" runat="server" ControlMode="Display" DisableInputFieldLabel="true"/>

I am sorry, but i could not find related to my problem in this article, could you please point it out. Tried <xsl:value-of select="@Modified_x0020_By"/> but did not work. :( – NotesArt May 29 '12 at 15:19
You are correct. I was testing this against a document library and not a custom list. I have it working now and will edit this answer. – Danny Jessee May 29 '12 at 23:28
It works..thanks a lot !!! – NotesArt Jun 4 '12 at 10:17
Hi Danny, I have a new requirement where I have to show item creator's name instead of modifier, I have tried to replace Editor with Creator but did not work. Please help. – NotesArt Jun 7 '12 at 3:59
Worked with Author. :) – NotesArt Jun 7 '12 at 4:02

In the ribbon click on the tab "List" > "Modify View"

Then you need to check this option "Modified By" field and save the view. Please refer to the sample view screen below enter image description here
