Get Microsoft Access 2007 user from laccdb or get username from Computer Name
Posted on 2013-01-28
I would like to get the username for users logged on to an Access 2007 database (.accdb) on the network. Could do it with ldbviewer or opening ldb file with Notepad in earlier versions of Access but it doesn't work with .laccdb files.
Apparently, .laccdb files are in binary format. I can get the computer name of users in Access 2007 files. That would work if I could get the username from the computer name.
So I'm looking for either getting the username from .laccdb files or corresponding the username from the computer name. Seems like net view should help but hasn't worked for me so far.
I tried oWMIService too, but it didn't work for me. I don't have Network Adiministration privileges.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
