Public Function getFullUserName() As String
Dim WSHnet As Object
Dim UserFullName As String

Dim UserDomain As String
Dim objUser As Object
Set WSHnet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
userName = WSHnet.userName
UserDomain = WSHnet.UserDomain
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & UserDomain & "/" & userName & ",user")
UserFullName = objUser.FullName
Set WSHnet = Nothing
Set objUser = Nothing
getFullUserName = UserFullName

Rarely I've come across the following problem in Excel VBA.
Some source code is definitely correct, but it just won't compile. I could one time confirm different Excel versions to be the root cause of the issue. Even though I slightly adjusted the source code in the target version of Excel, the compiler still showed funny error messages.
The trick that did solve the issue in the end was to cut the whole source code, compile and save the empty source code objects (modules, classes, etc..), paste the source code into target objects again and then compile as well as save in the target version of Excel.
From my understanding the file still held bits of the older version of Excel. However, I experienced this also using the same version of Microsoft Access on the same machine. Cutting and then pasting the source code with saving in between did the trick again.
