I have written a batch file that checks for the existance of a file on a users hard drive.  If it doesn't find the file, I want it to create a file on a server that is named after the user's Netware login name.  I know that you can use %LOGIN_NAME in scripts, but how can I access that same variable information from within a batch file?

In your login script set an environment variable to the user's login name, eg.
Dos Set NetUser = %LOGIN_NAME

In your batch file you can now use %NetUser for whatever you want.
