I have the below code.   I get an error when getting to:

    sUserName = modUtilities.GetUserName

I found that I can't get to the function when i right click and select Definition.  Any idea how to resolve?  Its working in another application.

Private Sub Form_Load()

    On Error GoTo Form_Load_Err
    
    If (Not IsNull(OpenArgs)) Then
        DoCmd.GoToRecord , "", acNewRec
    End If
    
    If (Not CurrentProject.IsTrusted) Then
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
    Dim sUserName As String
    sUserName = modUtilities.GetUserName
    
    If IsNull(Me.Title.Value) Then
        Me.CreatedBy.Value = sUserName
        Me.RevisedBy.Value = sUserName
        Me.CreatedOn.Value = Now
        Me.RevisedOn.Value = Now
    Else
        Me.RevisedBy.Value = sUserName
        Me.RevisedOn.Value = Now
    End If
    
    On Error Resume Next
    If (TempVars!NewData <> "") Then
        [Project Name] = TempVars!NewData
    End If

Open in new window


Below is my module (modUtilities)

Option Explicit
Option Compare Database

Private Declare Function apiGetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias _
    "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

Public Function GetUserName() As String
    
    ' Returns the network login name
    Dim lngLen As Long, lngX As Long
    Dim strUserName As String
    
    strUserName = String$(254, 0)
    lngLen = 255
    
    lngX = apiGetUserName(strUserName, lngLen)
    
    If (lngX > 0) Then
        GetUserName = Left$(strUserName, lngLen - 1)
    Else
        GetUserName = vbNullString
    End If

End Function
