Hi,
I am trying to get the groups included in another group using ADSI. In the principal group  I have users and groups on it. I´m trying to get these groups included on the principal filtering the members collection, but i'm not getting the collection filtered. I'm using following code:

Dim adsgroup As ActiveDs.IADsGroup
      Dim adsSubGroup As ActiveDs.IADs
      Dim sFilter() As String

            adsgroup = GetObject(sFormattedGroupName)
            ReDim Preserve sFilter(0)
            sFilter(0) = "Group"
            adsMembers = adsgroup.Members

            adsMembers.Filter = sFilter

            For Each adsMembers In adsMembers

           next

Can anyone tell me why this is not working?

Thank you

There could be members of members, so use a function that recall itself if that appends

Also

  sFilter(0) = ("(objectClass=group)")

remember that filter is case sensitive, so the class type and the classname are case sensitive

Thank you Dranizz, but I'm afraid it doesn't work.

Any other idea.

Thanks

Use the DirectoryServices.Dll reference
