I have copied a macro off another board that get the username of the computer where the excel file is opened. It works fine on my pc but when I have sent the workbook to a colleague my username came up when he opened it. Also what I am trying to do is to modify the macro that does a vlookup on a range in worksheet 1 from where it picks name and surname (and transpose it onto worksheet 2 on cell A2), email (on B2), tel number (on C2) etc etc.
I need a macro ie when a user opens a macro enabled workbook,he should be asked for a username and password to access workbook. Administrator should have right to create users with reset password rights
I've got a sheet with a "Last Edited By:" field and I want this to be populated with the current users name i.e. I suppose I mean the user name that is assigned to Excel, as opposed to the XP log in... although I guess either would do. I'm OK on the change event thing, but just dont know the function to find the the current users name.
I'm trying to use the code listed below on the works shared drive. When I open up the worksheet and save it, my log on identity is left as required in Cell B2 etc.. When someone else uses the sheet it just leaves the company name in this cell and not their log on identity? The date & time function always works ok. Can anyone advise me if what I'm after is achievable.
The code I've used below was used from a previous string on a similar question.
Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean) Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1).Value = Now() Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(0, 1).Value = Application.UserName End Sub[/b]
I have below piece of code which I'm not sure how to finish up. What I'm trying to do is have 'Username' and 'password' entered before logging into the workbook. It does not have to be 'UserForm" if it is possible, but it would be useful if we use Ucase...
I'm just not sure how this code works with
"Sub sUserLogon(strStandardID As String, strPassword As String)"
stated in this way..
VB: Sub sUserLogon(strStandardID As String, strPassword As String) Dim strUserName As String Dim StrMessage As String Application.DisplayAlertsAlerts = False StrMessage = "User Logged In"
This time stamp macro is great but I would also like to record the person who said 'Y' in the same cell as the date stamp '12:00p.m. MWatson'. The persons name should come from the Username.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Not Intersect(Target, Range([P13], Cells(Rows.Count, "p"))) Is Nothing Then 'change your range on this line" With ActiveSheet If Target.Value = "Y" Then Target.Offset(0, 1).Value = Now
I am using the below code to access a website with IE.
My next step (of many) is to Login to this website.
The login screen requires that I enter: User Name: Password:
How can I tell IE to enter my user name and Password?

I am trying to get the username from the system to display in A1 in a file in Excel. I got this code form internet and put it in the sheet by clicking right mouse on the sheet1 tab and view code and then pasted it there.
Function UserNameWindows() As String UserNameWindows = Environ("USRNAME") End Function
And then as per the instructions on the same page I inserted this formula in A1 : =UserNameWindows()
The person stated that by doing this, I should be able to get user name displayed in A1. BUt all it gives me is #NAME?.
i need a macro that will only open a file to certain users using the "get username" environ thing,
and only allow a list of users to access this file,
this will be a log of things that only managers whouls have access to, i have all the managers usernames (windows log ons) and what i need is that if the log on on the current machine, (the one currently opening the file) does not match one on th elist then the file should not open.
i could pasword protect the file but since my managers are kinda lazy and i wnat to show off a little (maybe hopefully that will push my promotion forward a couple of days at least)
I'm trying to create a program that will automatically log in to a website that requires a username & password. I am able to enter the username and password in the correct text boxes, but I can not get the form to submit to approve the login. It refreshes and removes the password.

I have a problem with the Excel UserName & opening of a second xls File. Info: The first file macro, looks as to the Excel UserName, and sets which worksheets from a second file in the network the person can see. then changes the Excel UserName to "helpdl", this is done because only 4 people have access to the Workbook on a network drive, see Code below (only the interesting part of the macro)
'Set the Excel UserName to "helpdl" '(from Sub Change_UserName) MyName = Application.UserName OName = MyName NewName = "HelpDL" UserName = NewName 'Set the name of the Active File To "Slave" Set wbSlave = ActiveWorkbook 'Open the Master from the Network (Wiesbaden server sv030100) Workbooks.Open "\sv030100GruppenDL60116_MEWA Car Policy_Neukonzeption.xls" 'Set the name of the Active File to "Master" Set wbMaster = ActiveWorkbook...........................

I have an Excel macro that pulls an external .txt file from a particular directory on a users computer. The directory is different for each user because of the way the computers are configured, see example below.
Bob's computer: c:obwork
Jill's computer: c:jillwork
There is a system variable called %username% on each computer that can be used for navigation in an OS enviroment. So if you were at the command prompt on user's computer and typed cd\%username%work you would be put in the desired directory. Is there a way to leverage this system level variable, %username%, in an Excel macro?
Usually when you try to open a file that someone else is using, it lets you know the file is in use, and lets you know who is using it. However, the situation I have is that when a user tries to open the file that is in use, it tells them that the file is in use, but gives them the wrong user who is using it!
For example, User1 opens the file and closes it again. User2 comes along and opens the file and stays in the file. User3 comes along and tries to open the file, but instead of saying User2 is using the file. It says User1 is using!
The file we have was originally built in Excel 97, but we using it through compatibility mode in Office 2007. The file is needed by various users, but putting it on shared access is not an option.
I have a list of tweets, and I would like to extract just the username found within the tweet. I'm not sure if a formula is the best way to do this, or possibly a macro.
The example I've attached is only of 18 tweets, but the spreadsheet I'm looking to use this on is 100,000+ tweets, so I need something easily scalable. One thing to note is that a tweet can have more than oneuser mentioned in it, such as the first tweet in the example.
Excel can automatically recognise individuals by their windows login name so you can fully automate the protect/unprotect of the correct sheets without even individuals having to use passwords.
The first step though would be to gather the id's of all users.
1. Create an additional sheet and call it UserLog 2. Put the following code into all the worksheet code modules
Once you know the windows login names and which sheet they are responsible for you can add the following code to each worksheet.
I have tried as per below and it is not working.
I have about 50 user that uses one document and will record their comments to instructions, but only 20 users will be able to add the instructions. The document needs to autolock when it is saved and can only be unlock with the username of the 20 users.
I'm trying to only show specific sheets per user using the environ variable and this code seems to work for the single user / sheet but the master user does not function correctly i.e. the code does not show all sheets, this is the code I am using:
Why the above code does not respect the Master User "Jane" should be able to see all sheets?
In username the range a2:b5 contains the following: a2= John b2=Write a3=Scott b3=Readonly where John or Scott are usernames in Environ("Username")
Is it possible to write a macro that does the following: 1. When the file is opened it looks at the network username and checks again the Username range in sheet3, if it is Write then the user can change cells in Data Entry and save the workbook, if Readonly then they can only view and not save, and if not there at all, then the worksheet closes.
2. When the file is opened write a log in a hidden sheet callled "Log" of the time opened and the username
3. Is it possible to do the same but making a copy of all cells changed ??
I have searched the forum several way to resolve my issue and the only solutions were as follows:
PHP Public Function UserName()UserName = Environ("username")UserName = Computer("UserName")End FunctionOption ExplicitFunction NetworkUserName() As StringDim responseNetworkUserName = Environ("Username")End Function
Problem is that I get a #REF! and #NAME? instead of the user names I am using Excel 2000 (I can not upgrade, Government PC) plus we need it to support Excel 2000 - present versions.
I have a button that saves my excel workbook to a network drive, but what I'd like to do is have it save the file to a directory named after the user, instead of all the users in the department saving to one folder. For instance, R:customerserviceweight reconstructionusername, where username a directory named after the user.
Code: Private Sub Save_Click()Dim Path As String Dim FileName1 As String Dim FileName2 As String FileName1 = Range("A2") FileName2 = Range("A3") ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="R:CustomerServiceWeight Reconstruction" & FileName1 & " - " & FileName2 & " - " & Format(Date, "yyyymmdd") & ".xlsm", FileFormat:=52 End Sub
I am looking for a way to query an OpenLDAP instance, using the values in column A and looking up whether or not the username is active or not. The return value would be true/false in column B, which would indicate that yes, the username is active, or no, it is not.
As part of my requirement, i'm trying to update some data into share path. While trying to access the share path, i'm being asked to key-in appropriate username & password. Windows alert will be opened when my code try to access share path, there I have to enter username & password using script.
I have imported a list of information from a text file created by my network admin. I need to take the information from different categories in the list and sort them by category. All of the information is in once cell, but each has a common prefix (ie. URL = or Username), etc. After each prefix is the information I'd like to sort under the category (each category is the prefix). All of the information (prefix & data) is in cell A because it was a text file, and I'd like to simply find a way to say if A10 = URL= then place the information in C10...Below is what I need to sort.
URL = [url] User Name = Source IP = 0.0.0.0 Destination IP = 12.345.67.89
I have a spreadsheet where for traceability purposes, I get some vba to enter elsewhere on the sheet, the date and time that data is entered into a cell. Is it possible to also somehow capture the name of the person entering the data. We are on a network, so the pc does "know" which user is logged in.
I've been trying to get the network username and found the solution on a previous thread. I have got to the point where I have copied the network username to my workbook. I now want to save this workbook into My Documents using that value for the username. So, so far i have:
'Get username from network
Dim User As String
CUser = Environ("username") Cells(5000, 9) = Environ("username") user = Application.ActiveCell
' Protect workbook and save in My Documents
ChDir "C:Documents and SettingsXXXXXXXMy Documents"
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= _ "C:Documents and SettingsXXXXXXMy DocumentsSalary Review Data 2007 - " & country & ".xls" _ , FileFormat:=xlNormal, Password:="", WriteResPassword:="", _ ReadOnlyRecommended:=False, CreateBackup:=False
The user who saves this workbook, will be doing so on their own PC's so i need the file to save to their 'My Documents' folder. So i need to replace the red X's with the user's network username (which I have extracted and dim'd as User. How do i write this into the path of the directory?
I am trying to log on to an FTP site and post a file through Excel VB. I have managed to open a new Explorer window and direct it to the URL, but I don't know what to do next. After navigation to the URL a Pop-Up Window comes asking for UserName and Password and I don't know how to supply it and click submit. After I have completed that I will need to give the path of the file, click post, and close the window when it is done.
Here is what I got so far:
The commented out stuff is not working. I got it off a similar application that someone else in my company wrote that accomplishes a similar task.

I am getting an Run Time error 1004 Application-defined or object defined-error.
I am assuming this is occuring because the username is not in the list for the pivot table as I am using some code which includes Environ, some code that if user name is not in pivot table then bring back no data or make pivot table blank. I have included the code below.
i have a username and password textbox and i want to know when i enter a correct username the textbox it is in turns green and when wrong it will turn red, here is the code i have so far im not very experienced but know bits and pieces.
I have a code for userform login. The users will enter their user name, password, and role and then click on submit. The user names, password and roles are given in the sheet "user access".
Now the problem is if a user enters a wrong user name which is not on the sheet "user access", it gives a msg stating invalid username. And if I click ok it is showing a run time error. Is there a way to stop showing this run time error and just show the invalid username msg box alone.
I was able to get some help a while ago and hoping for someone to reply as well. Any one have ideas how to create a userform which will be use for username and password input? I know how to create one but is there anyway that the username and password will be stored as .txt file instead of using worksheet to store the data?
I need a mar that I want to attach to a button that would:Add a new comment with the date/time added to the username [format XYZ 22/10/09 14:48] and then I type the comment text, and/or Append a new comment to the existing comment, in the same format as for 1.
I have bit of code that: (1) opens another spreadsheet (2) updates that spreadsheet (3) saves that spreadsheet (4) closes that spreadsheet
If the spreadsheet that requires updating is open by another user, I display a message indicating the file is open and no updates occured. There are about 20 persons within the organization that may have this file open? Is there away to display the username of the person who has the file open?.
