Hello group,

to help me plan, I created a startup sheet with two buttons labeled "User" and "Manager" (the User view will hide certain sheets to avoid confusion).

This is obviously a primitive solution and was wondering if there was a way for Excel (97)or the VBA to be able to check to see who the user is (I had no luck with Application.UserName because it just returns the organization's name).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
