Our system is part of a Novel LAN... Is there any way to get the Novel LogonID from the system(a function like Now())? I thought at one time that I found a list of Windows variables that included things like windows version, and the network logonid...

We use this function in an Access 2.0 app running on a novell
network to get the user id.

Declare Function wu_WNetGetUser% Lib "USER.EXE" Alias "WNetGetUser" (ByVal szUser$, lpnBufferSize%)

Function NetworkUserID () As String
   Dim szUser As String * 255
   Dim lpnBufferSize As Integer
   Dim status As Integer

   lpnBufferSize = 255
   status = wu_WNetGetUser(szUser, lpnBufferSize)
   If (status = 3) Then
      NetworkUserID = "WNetGetUser Failed"
   Else
      'Return up to first Null.
      NetworkUserID = Left$(szUser, InStr(szUser, Chr(0)) - 1)
   End If

End Function
