In order to access the login user’s DisplayName, EmailAddress, etc properties, you will need to use the “GroupWise.account.owner” to access the Address object. See the Object API for for information: http://developer.novell.com/documentation/gwobjapi/index.html?gwobjenu/data/h7ikbsqg.html

To access the address book entry properties (i.e. department, address, etc), you will need to access the AddressBookEntry object. See the sample code below which pass the Address object to access the AddressBookEntry object then it iterate the available fields.

  
  dim owner
  dim oABEntry
  dim oAddressBook

  ' Get the system address book
  set oAddressBook = groupwise.account.addressbooks.item("Novell GroupWise Address Book")

  ' Get the login user address object
  set owner = GroupWise.account.owner
  msgbox owner.displayname


  ' Get the address book entry object which contains more properties (i.e. fields)
  set oABEntry = oAddressBook.AddressBookEntries.item(owner)

  ' Iterate available fields of the address book entry
  for each oField in oABEntry.Fields
    msgbox "Field name: " & oField.name & vbcrlf & "Field value: " & oField.value
  next

  set oABEntry = nothing
  set owner = nothing
  set oAddressBook = nothing
