Word 2000 Macro

Hi,
I wrote the following Macro in Word and added it as a button on the toolbar so that when any user connects to our Terminal Server and runs Word, they can save the current document to their local C:\.

ChangeFileOpenDirectory "\\tsclient\C\"
ActiveDocument.Save

This works fine, but it would be ideal to save the document to the users local My Documents folder. To do that requires a variable and I need help with that. I tried this but it doesn't work:

ChangeFileOpenDirectory "\\tsclient\C\Documents and settings\%UserProfile%\My Documents\"
ActiveDocument.Save

I think I'm on the right track, just need the correct variable for the current user, and proper syntax.

Thanks,
Bill

Hi, Bill,

This might be what you're looking for:
http://word.mvps.org/faqs/MacrosVBA/GetCurUserName.htm

Once you've got the function in your code, you should be able to call it like this:

ChangeFileOpenDirectory "\\tsclient\C\Documents and settings\" & GetUserName & "\My Documents\"
ActiveDocument.Save

You can use Environ

Sub SetFolderFromEnviron()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim env() As String
   
    Do
        i = i + 1
        env = Split(Environ(i), "=")
        If UCase$(env(0)) = "USERNAME" Then
            ChangeFileOpenDirectory "\\tsclient\C\Documents and settings\" & env(1) & "\My Documents\"
            ActiveDocument.Save
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Loop Until UBound(env) < 1
   
    MsgBox "UserName not found"

End Sub
