nt user

Is there a function that will get the current user of the domain.
All users are part of a NT domain therefor they are valid users.
I need to get there NT login name.
Any ideas?

You can easily retrieve a user's network logon name by using the following API call:

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


To retrieve a "clean" version of the name, use this function:

Public Function NTDomainUserName() As String
Dim strBuffer As String * 255
Dim lngBufferLength As Long
Dim lngRet As Long
Dim strTemp As String

    lngBufferLength = 255
    lngRet = GetUserName(strBuffer, lngBufferLength)
    strTemp = UCase(Trim$(strBuffer))
    NTDomainUserName = Left$(strTemp, Len(strTemp) - 1)

End Function

Try this...  Reject me if it doesn't work...

It's an API call...

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




Dim s$,cnt&,dl&
cnt&=199
s$=String$(200,0)
dl&=GetUserName(s$,cnt)
Debug.Print Left$(s$,cnt);cnt

The api youre looking for is called
Public Declare Function WNetGetUser Lib "mpr.dll" Alias "WNetGetUserA" (ByVal lpName As String, ByVal lpUserName As String, lpnLength As Long) As Long

Much easier:
try Environ("USERNAME") and
Environ("USERDOMAIN")
