I dont know about getting the password but have a look at these two examples

Username in NT msgbox environ("UserName")

or

API

Declare Function GetUserName Lib "advapi32" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal strName As String, ByRef dwLength As Long) As Long

intLen = 50
strUserID = Space(intLen + 1)
GetUserName strUserID, intLen
strUserID = Left(strUserID, intLen - 1)
msgbox strUserID

Retrieve user name

Option Explicit

Private Const UNKNOWN = _
"(Value Unknown Because System Call Failed)"

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

Public Function GetCurrentUserName() As String

Dim l As Long
Dim sUser As String

sUser = Space$(255)
l = GetUserName(sUser, 255)

'strip null terminator

If l <> 0 Then
   GetCurrentUserName = Left(sUser, InStr(sUser, Chr(0)) - 1)
Else
   Err.Raise Err.LastDllError, , _
     "A system call returned an error code of " _
      & Err.LastDllError
End If

End Function


Private Sub Form_Load()
    MsgBox GetCurrentUserName()
End Sub



Retrieve Password? Researching.

Hopefully the password is not stored, therefore unreturnable.
