Looking for an alternative to Access's Environ("username") for SQL Server.

I've just up-sized a .mdb application to a 2000 SQL server.  Everything worked great except I've used    Environ("username")   in several default and SQL queries.   Apparently SQL does not like Environ("username")  and I got ODBC errors.  I got around the default problem but I have not found a solution to include Environ("username") in a SQL query.  Any Ideas?

Cheers,
Worth

Create a public function in a global module and call the function from within the query:
Public Function GetEnviron(EnvironCall As String)
   GetEnviron = Environ(EnvironCall)
End Function

Call with:
GetEnviron("UserName")

That worked for the query, but is very slow for some reason when used on an access form.  Got better speed using a mix of the two.
