More specifically... I am trying to get the map a directory that uses just the first name or logon name.   \\computer\share\logon name\data.   \\testserver\excel\mark  where "Mark" is the name the user uses to login.  His full name is "Mark Smith"

we are using a logon script to do this and using the code below only gives us the full name

Set wshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set ADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & ADSysInfo.UserName)

If InStr(strGroups, LABELS_GROUP) Then
    wshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "l:", "\\testsever\excel\" & Currentuser.name
End If

Please help

Thanks for you help mdiglio,  We are have solved are problem and moved on.  We ended up simply creating directories with the users full name and mapping our drive to that directory using the USERNAME variable.... forgetting about having it just be the users first name.

It works and all users report no problems.

We are closing out this question.
Best regards..
