i saw that someone had quoted in another question that

environ("DOMAINNAME") should work, but it didn't.

so how can i find out the "domain name" which is shown on "my computer" window, should work on xp and 2000.

also what happens when this is called on a "2003 server"?

Its:

Environ("UserDomain")


But if you dont want to do that, here is an API solution (i prefer this method anyway):

I agree with Brian.

In addition, just in case you don't know...

Do Start/Run, type in CMD and press [Enter].

Type in SET and press [Enter].
It will show you ALL of the Environment variables set on the computer and their values.
