Hi All,
I was wondering what would be the best way to get the NT login names for users if I know there first name and last name. I was thinking about using ADSI. Is this a good solution.
Thank You,
Kent

Try using:

Dim uLst
Set uLst = GetObject("WinNT://DomainName")
uLst.Filter = Array("User")
For Each User In uLst

Here is the code we use to get the user's login name

Declare Function GetUserNameA Lib "advapi32.dll" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long


Public Function GetUserName() As String
Dim UserName As String * 255

Call GetUserNameA(UserName, 255)
GetUserName = Left$(UserName, InStr(UserName, Chr$(0)) - 1)
End Function
