I have a workbook that I only want certain users to be able to open. I have a list of network usernames that should have access on a worksheet called "LISTS". The list of usernames is in column "M" (range M2:M159) that has a dataname of "usernames". How do I set up some VBA code to look at the Windows network username that is currently logged on and determine if that username has access to open the workbook?

As security goes, that would be fairly rubbish, in all honesty. Can't you put the file somewhere that only certain users have network access to? It would be a lot safer.

I can for one of the files, but the other is a financial document that only certain people are privy to. That file is emailed to them, but the added security would be nice.

You can use Environ("username") to get the login ID, but simply disabling macros would defeat that. ;)
