Hello, I am completely new to vbscripting. Currently we have batch files connecting to network shares using the NET USE command simmilar to this

net use H: /delete /y
net use H: \\server01\%username%

What could i use in vbs that would do the same function %username% does?

Thank you for your help!

.MapNetworkDrive "H:", "\\server01\" & .UserName
