Obtain User ID within Citrix environment with VBA

Hello Folks

I have been using the fOSUserName function to obviously obtain a user's ID.

This has been working with in the Windows environment but when the same code is transferred over to a Citrix environment I am unable to obtain the User ID.

Can you please advise, if available, the vba coding to use in order to obtain the ID within Citrix?

I am currently obtaining the User ID via Access VBA.

Thank you in advance.

Why is fosUserName not working for you?  I use it in my applications where I login via Citrix, and it returns the same userID I use to log in as.  You don't have multiple people signing into Citrix with the same userid and password, do you?

Hello Dale

Thank you for getting back to me.

You could be right there Dale. That was something that didn't occur to me.  I will just check that condition first and then provide an update.

As always...your assistance is much appreciated.
