I am wanting to echo to the name of the local system by querying the %computername% environment variable.

Wscript.echo %computername% doesn't work.

Can ya help me with the syntax?

You're welcome, sorry about not saying much ( That was a vba example obviously ) but what I was getting at was that you could just use Environ("ComputerName")

I think there is a bit more to it then just that but the first solution is a good one.
