I would like to use Environ("Username") to find a value in a table and return this value to a textbox in a form.

Please help me!

Copied the code into the controlsource of the textbox

= DLookup("[Center]","[tbl_Brugere]", "[Bruger] = " & Chr(34) & Environ("UserName") & Chr(34) )

but the textbox just shows:

#Name?

Humm ...  not seeing the problem assuming Center is the Field you want the value from, tbl_Brugere is the table, and Bruger is what you are trying to match with Environ.

I notice
tbl_Brugere  and Bruger   ... is one of these a typo by chance ??

You might try without the brackets also

=DLookup("Center", "tbl_Brugere", "[Bruger] = " & Chr(34) & Environ("UserName") & Chr(34))
