Ok I have my form to get the username of someone logged into the computer and on a network but I am having a problem now setting that form to store a record on to a table.  For example, the control source of the text box on the form is =Environ("Username") and has no way to store the value onto the table.  All other fields on my form which have a control source linked to a column on my table are able to store information...please help
