it is and ASP code... However yo can use it in VB as well.

Private Declare Function GetUserName& Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long)
is the definition of the function GetUserName, which is stored in advapi32.dll

As for the function, I dont think it is right... Check this one

Function sGetUser() As String                            
' Returns current network logon
' Usage:      ="Network User Name: " & sGetUser()

    Dim s$, cnt&, dl&, sWho As String

    cnt& = 199
    s$ = String$(200, 0)
    dl& = GetUserName(s$, cnt)
    sGetUser = Left$(s$, cnt - 1)

End Function

I found it on http://p2p.wrox.com/archive/access/2001-12/63.asp

If you have VB installed, just copy paste this code and use it as described in the comment.
Something like

Mgsbox "Network User Name: " & sGetUser()

You cannot use API calls directly from an ASP page.   You must wrap it up in a COM DLL that you can then access from ASP.

if all you are after is the username i find the

username = Request.ServerVariables("logon_user")

works fine for me.
