hi,
can you import the typelib activeds.tlb to get some functions.

there is an article on "Searching in ADSI from Delphi" in The
Delphi Magazine, Issue No. 62 - Oct 2000. with component TADSISearch to do exactly that. Comes with sample code.

You can download the code from the Delphi magazine's web site:
http://tdmwebx.com/dmdisks/dmag62.zip

and you can order the back issue from their web site:

http://www.thedelphimagazine.com/conts/conts62.php
and article using adsi in back issue 76:
http://www.thedelphimagazine.com/conts/conts76.php



also i saved below form a paq that may be useful for you:

These are not perfect, but do a fair bit of useful stuff
