Accessing data in Active Directory

thanks for reading this post. Is there anything in VB that will allow you to access data from active directory? For example, I would like to find out which group(s) a particular user is a member of. I appreciate any lead you may have.

You need to look in MSDN and check out LDAP access. This will provide you with ActiveX objects which bind to objects in Active Directory look up iadsUser and iadsGroup.

There are loads of VB code examples which will help you hook up to ADs and bind to that object.
