In a module, put this line of code

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


As a test, you can put this code on a button

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim sBuffer As String
    Dim lSize As Long
    sBuffer = Space$(255)
    lSize = Len(sBuffer)
    Call GetUserName(sBuffer, lSize)
    If lSize > 0 Then
        Command1.Caption = Left$(sBuffer, lSize)
    End If
End Sub

Run the form, click on the button and your login name should appear on the button.
