KXL - Possible to use %USERPROFILE% or alt?
Hello all,
Recently, I've been working on improving a macro we have at my company. So far so good, save one hangup - the macro auto-exports to the user's desktop.

That works fine as is - but that requires the end user editting the macro to supply their Windows user name for file path concatenation.

I attempted using the old Windows cmd approach of using %USERPROFILE% and ever escape for the % I could remember, but no luck. Is there a trick I'm missing, or an alternative to get to the current active user?
Thank you

Could you write the information to a known directory?

I tried using the EXEC kxl function, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to investigate further to see if it is a bug.
