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) May 29, 2012 at 12:06
  • Does not work :(

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. :(

  • 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. May 29, 2012 at 23:28
  • 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.

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

  • I can display it in view..but i need it on the form.
