    Unanswered: List of Current Network Users Accessing Database

    Anyone know how (or if it's possible) to generate a list Windows network user names (not MS Access User Names from Security module) that are currently logged into a multi-user shared database?

    I got a function from the MS website to get the current user at the current machine, but I'm looking to find out the remote users accessing the database.

    Any ideas?

    I got this from It's a great web site.

    Paste the following code in a new module and call the function fOSUserName.

    '******************** Code Start **************************
    Private Declare Function apiGetUserName Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias _
    "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long

    Function fOSUserName() As String
    ' Returns the network login name
    Dim lngLen As Long, lngX As Long
    Dim strUserName As String
    strUserName = String$(254, 0)
    lngLen = 255
    lngX = apiGetUserName(strUserName, lngLen)
    If lngX <> 0 Then
    fOSUserName = Left$(strUserName, lngLen - 1)
    fOSUserName = ""
    End If
    End Function
    '******************** Code End **************************

    Good luck.
