At our company everyone logs onto their computers (XP 2002 SP 3) with a unique userid.

I need Excel to record that userid into a cell in Excel where I can tailor the database query to SQL to customize/personalize the query and consequently the output within the spreadsheet.

How do I get the userid to be returned to a cell?

Thanks in advance

This can only be done with code..add this code to a new module.

Code:
Private Function UserName()
UserName = Environ("UserName")
End Function

use in cell as formula

=Username()
