I used the following code to get my window login ID:

        Dim strUser As String
        strUser = GetWindowsUserName
        Range("UserID") = strUser

"strUser" is sometimes upper case and sometimes lower case.  Is there anyway I can control this?

Will this do?

Range("UserID") = lCase(strUser) ' or UCase(strUser)
