    Pass parameter to an Access Project at startup?

    I have an Access 2010 Data Project app that will be placed on a Citrix Server. Each user authenticates via Citrix, so I'd to skip the authentication hassle on the front-end and somehow inherit a value -- perhaps user's email address or login ID -- from Citrix itself at runtime. Citrix is a trusted source and I could rely on and use the value/parameter it provided. However, I see that the /user and /pwd command line parameters only apply to Access databases, not projects. Is there any way to accomplish this when using an ADP?

    From within Access you can call a Windows API to get the current user. See:

    I use this to auto log in to Access apps. I get the User name at start up and validate them.
