Below is my current code. When a user selects the "Administrator" Caption in my treeview I want it
to block access unless the user is a manager. What is the best way to do this ?

I do already have code in place to pull the users network ID and place it in label29.caption
Need  Msgbox displaying that access is not available unless label29.caption = manager1,manager2 or manager3...etc

Private Sub tvTreeView_NodeClick(ByVal Node As MSComctlLib.Node)
    Select Case Node.Key
       Case "Administrator"  
           If Lable29.caption = "manager1", manager2 or manager3 expand Administrator Tree
           else  MsgBox " You do not have permission to access this module" (Or any other module under admin )
          End If
 
       Case "Shared Files"
           My code......
           My code......

       Case " Admin Reports"    ' This is under the "Administrator" view, so I want it blocked as well
            Code ??? Same as above I assume
        End Select
End Sub


Any help would be appreciated

if Lable29.caption like "manager*"  I only have three managers, so I would need it to reflect their network usernames.

How do you write "jdoe, mjohnson or tsmith"

Thanks,

note that it would be better to store the list of them in a table, and check if the current user is in that list, and put that into a boolean value... much easier to maintain...
