I just do not know what is wrong with this statement.

    DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tblIDNums(MachineUserID, MachineID) " & _
        "VALUES(" & fntVBUserName & ", " & fntMachineName() & " "

Your string variables need to be contained within quotes and closing parenthesis missing:

DoCmd.RunSQL "INSERT INTO tblIDNums(MachineUserID, MachineID) " & _
        "VALUES('" & fntVBUserName & "', '" & fntMachineName() & "') "


Note I added a single quote before/after the variables. If you have single quotes in your variables you need to escape or you may run into problems.

Better solution is to use a querydef with parameters so that you don't have to worry about special characters in the string.

went the querydef route, was better.
