Hi, If anyone could help :confused:

I want the user ID to appear in a cell

Public Function user() As String
user = Environ("username")
End Sub


All works fine, but when I send it to another user they have to click on the cell for it to update.... (hope that makes sence)

could anyone help me making it update when the spreadsheet is opened ?

Many thanks

Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1") = user 'change Sheet and Range as required
End Sub
 
Public Function user() As String
user = Environ("username")
End Function
