Anyone know any way to access the windows username from Fujitsu Cobol?

If not, any environment variable? (ip, computer name...)

Thanks in advance!

I don't see it in the intrinsic function list or the environment variable list but there is an example program showing how to accept command line arguments.  So you might be able to specify the current user as a symbolic on the command line and then pick it up in the program from the arguments.
