Thanks,
I did it but i guess it is not doing what I want it to do.

I have this table linked to Access.  When a user is adding a new row to the table (via a report) I want the USER column to put their sql user name in there automatically.

But it may not be necessary to have SQL server name for every user who can access Access.
We can always capture user name of user accessing Access and pass it on to MSSQL for update.

Yes, you can create USER (Don't use USER since it is a reserved keyword and hence used user_name_log) column like this

create table test ( a int identity, b int, c varchar(10), user_name_log varchar(100) default suser_name())
