Hi
Add reference to Windows Scripting Host
'(VB menu, project, reference)
Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Dim wsh As New IWshNetwork_Class
  Text1 = wsh.UserName
End Sub

If you dont have access to the scripting hosts its:

Option Explicit

Private Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long


Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim s$, x&
 
  s = String$(255, 0)
  x = GetUserName(s, Len(s))
  Debug.Print Left$(s, x)
End Sub


Good Luck!  :)
