On a MOSS 2007 Team Site, I used the Web UI to add a View, and used the Web UI to filter it in order to fetch the items where Title equals ACME\Joe.

<Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name="ID"/></OrderBy><Where><Eq><FieldRef Name="Title"/><Value Type="Text">Acme\Joe</Value></Eq></Where></Query>

I opened this View in Designer and pasted some of the CAML that was generated above.

Is there a way to modify the XML so that the fixed "ACME\Joe" is replaced by the username or userid of the currently logged in user, whatever is easier to get? I can ensure the username, userid, or anything, for that matter, populates the Title field.

My goal is to have a view that returns the items created by the currently logged in user.
