  Asked By: Robert    Date: Oct 28    Category: MS Office    Views: 1545

I use the below formula to pull the current user name (and format in
caps) in a few places.

Format(Environ("username"), ">")

I was wondering if anyone new of a simple expression to pull the
current domain name.

Try something like this:

Sub GetNetworkDomain()
Dim wsh
Set wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
MsgBox wsh.UserDomain
End Sub

userdomain is an environ element... try this and you can see what items you can
get from the environ... (modified from the help example

Sub environstring()

Dim EnvString, Indx, Msg, PathLen ' Declare variables.
Indx = 1 ' Initialize index to 1.
EnvString = Environ(Indx) ' Get environment
' variable.
If Left(EnvString, 5) = "PATH=" Then ' Check PATH entry.
PathLen = Len(Environ("PATH")) ' Get length.
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet2").Range("A" & Indx).Value = EnvString
' Msg = "PATH entry = " & Indx & " and length = " & PathLen
' Exit Do
Indx = Indx + 1 ' Not PATH entry,
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("sheet2").Range("A" & Indx).Value = EnvString
End If ' so increment.
Loop Until EnvString = ""
If PathLen > 0 Then
MsgBox Msg ' Display message.
MsgBox "No PATH environment variable exists."
End If

End Sub

Don't be too hard on him...when I program, I tend to use whatever is
handiest and easiest. Especially with vba sometimes I have to
branch out to other sources to quickly accomplish what I need.

For what it's worth, I'd say that most of my vba code projects have
some vbs code in them (sometimes vba just can't do certain things).
