SSRS Strip Domain from User!UserID

In SSRS, if you want to be fancy and display the USER NAME in the header or footer of your reports, like what I do.  SSRS uses Domain\UserName format... So someone this morning was asking in the forums about how to strip the domain out.

So I provided two solutions...

="Welcome " & MID(User!UserID,InStr(User!UserID,"\")+1, Len(User!UserID))

="Welcome " & =right(User!UserID, InStr(StrReverse(User!UserID),"\")-1)

Hope that helps someone...
