Is it possible to get the application user name when using powerpoint in a similar same way as you can in excel by using application.username

Not using the PPT object model.
See Shyam Pillai's solution to this problem.

Hi Andy, How are tags going?

Does this do it?

Sub username()

Msgbox Environ("USERNAME")

End Sub

Hi John,

Environ does not return the Username, at least form me, which is used in PPT.

Help says,

Returns the String associated with an operating system environment variable

The tags thing is about 80%. There are a lot more scenarios where tags are available than I first thought. Will keep you posted though.
