Finding the desktop folder of the current User in Access 2007 VBA

Like it says in the title, I need to find a file on the desktop of the User that has my app open. I have code to look for file in a folder already - but where do I make it look at that desktop folder for the current User? Is there an easy way?

many thanks.

Environ("USERPROFILE") & "\Desktop" will get you there.

Or you can try the API call available via the code located at: http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0054.htm

This API call gives you a variety of parameters for locating various folders on the users computer.

LSM...: it works! (why am I not surprised...)

Fyed: very comprehensive and will remain in my list of "useful things to know about" but for the moment, I will use LSM...'s simpler solution.
