Type the following code into a new module:
 
     ' Makes sure all variables are dimensioned in each subroutine.
     Option Explicit
 
     ' Access the GetUserNameA function in advapi32.dll and
     ' call the function GetUserName.
     Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" _
     (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
 
     ' Main routine to Dimension variables, retrieve user name
     ' and display answer.
     Sub Get_User_Name()
 
     ' Dimension variables
     Dim lpBuff As String * 25
     Dim ret As Long, UserName As String
 
     ' Get the user name minus any trailing spaces found in the name.
     ret = GetUserName(lpBuff, 25)
     UserName = Left(lpBuff, InStr(lpBuff, Chr(0)) - 1)
 
     ' Display the User Name
     MsgBox UserName
     End Sub
