I've been learning so much from this seminar. I work at a very big company, and I'm building a database for my office that would help make our daily tasks more efficient. That's why this seminar is a complete game changer for me. I digress, I would like to establish a way to get the username from the Windows10 account signed in. I can build my UserT with known employees, but I would like to get rid of the need for LoginF altogether.
Simply put, once a user opens the DB, the GlobalModule would read the UserName from the machine and enter it into UserID and UserName fields that are hidden in MainMenuF. If the user isn't listed, they can add their details to a separate UserF that will default add them to a Group with no access to data until a User with Admin privileges manually adds them to the correct group.

I'm sure the experts here can build this in a matter of minutes, but I'm at a loss. I looked online and found the
apiGetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias _
"GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long)

function code, but I have no idea how to make it work. My IT Dept is of no help because the one developer they do have is back logged with tons of higher priority tasking. It would take weeks for him to respond to my ticket request. SO I turn here for help. Maybe this subject would make a great TechHelp Video to promote the Security Seminar. Thanks in Advance.

I can't see where my syntax is wrong.
[frmMain_Menu] is grabbing the UserName fine, I've made sure the same UserName in [UserT] matches.
