This snippet will diplay name of currently logged on user

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

Private Sub Command1_Click ()
  Dim RetVal As Long
  Dim Puffer As String * 256
  Dim UserName As String
 
  RetVal = GetUserName(Puffer, Len(Puffer))

  ' Bei vbNullChar "abtrennen" und anzeigen
  If RetVal <> 0 Then
      UserName = Left$(Puffer, Instr(1, Puffer, vbNullChar) - 1)    
    MsgBox "Hallo " & UserName
  End If
