While you can use many different API function to get user and domain information, if you're running under Windows NT or 2000 Server there is a shortest path, based on the fact that the operating system loads many piece of data into environment variables:

' this code works only under Windows NT and Windows 2000 Server
Debug.Print "Computer Name: " & Environ$("COMPUTERNAME")
Debug.Print "Logon Server: " & Environ$("LOGONSERVER")
Debug.Print "User Domain: " & Environ$("USERDOMAIN")
Debug.Print "User Name: " & Environ$("USERNAME")
