    Alan,

    i am getting a compile error stating sub or function not defined. Please advise.

    Private Sub Form_Load()

    Dim sPermit As String
    Dim iAccess As Integer
    Dim Ctl As Access.Control
    Me.txtUser = Environ("username")
    If IsNothing(Me.txtUser) Then
    sPermit = "ReadOnly"
    Else
    sPermit = GetPermission(Me.txtUser)
    End If
    Select Case sPermit
    Case "Edit"
    iAccess = 2
    Case "Admin"
    iAccess = 3
    Case Else
    iAccess = 1
    End Select
    Me.txtLevel = iAccess
    End Sub

    Which line of code is highlighted when you open the VBE after getting the compile error. Click on the link below in my signature about debugging.

    Private Sub Form_Load() is highlighted and it stops at IsNothing in the code.
