My users on ubuntu server has quota enabled. And I can list current information with repquota. This prints information for all users. Is it possible to request quota information for particular user? (|grep - is not an option)

thank you

repquota(8) is not the command for this: It's designed to operate on the whole filesystem, not the stuff owned by an individual user/group.

You want to use quota(1) instead. Something like quota -u myuser will do what you want.
See the manpage, specifically the -u (user) option, for more details.
