Hi Kamlesh,

Try this:
(replace cvgroup with your workgroup or domain)

Set myobj = GetObject("WinNT://cvgroup")
myobj.Filter = Array("computer")
For Each co In myobj
MsgBox co.Name
Next

Thanks Rajesh,

I m getting the computer name alongwith its IPaddresses...

but i m facing a small problem is that i have 5 domains under which 3-4 computers are there..

but the program is identifying all 5 domains.. but when it goes to bring computer list under each domain... it is bringing for last 3 only ...i checked in network neighbourhood all domains are having 5-6 computers

my code is --


Private Sub Form_Load()
   Dim GlobalName
    Dim MyDomain
    Set GlobalName = GetObject("WinNT:")
    For Each MyDomain In GlobalName
         MsgBox "DOMAIN==>" & MyDomain.name
         Call GetComputers(MyDomain.name)
    Next
End Sub


Private Sub GetComputers(name As String)
    Dim oDomain
    Dim ocomputer
    Set oDomain = GetObject("WinNT://" & name)
    oDomain.Filter = Array("Computer")
    For Each ocomputer In oDomain
        MsgBox "Computer in Domain -- > " & ocomputer.name
    Next


End Sub

thanks
