How do I get the name of the user logged into the PC ? by chris153
Posted: 16 Mar 04

The following code supplies the login name of the user that's logged onto the PC. Copy it into a module and call the GetUserName_TSB function.

Declare Function TSB_API_GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
Public prompt As String

Public Function GetUserName_TSB() As String
On Error GoTo error_handler
Dim lngLen As Long
Dim strBuf As String
Const MaxUserName = 255
strBuf = Space(MaxUserName)
lngLen = MaxUserName
If CBool(TSB_API_GetUserName(strBuf, lngLen)) Then
  GetUserName_TSB = Left$(strBuf, lngLen - 1)
  GetUserName_TSB = ""
End If
Exit Function
End Function
