I need to capture the machine ID of the user. How do I go about doing that in VBA?
The problem is that I can get the user ID now, but we need to log where the user is accessing an application and entering data into it. This is for quality assurance tracking purposes in a production system.

An example: Only new parts should go into a new product, so if the user is entering data in a system that only is used in a warehouse that has used parts then something might be wrong...
