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
