  Query  LDAP for the user object - it returns the security global group and what Security global group the user is a member of.
  A user object can be in one branch but a member of multiple ones.  In Active Directory users and computers - you can view
  the members of the SGG object - but it only displays the name and Active Directory folder.  I need to get the title for each  
 member of object .
  Is there a way to get this information without having to go back to active directory and get each 'member of' user object ?
  Trying to find a way around having to get each individual user object .

I don't know of a way without enumerating through the first query and running another query on each one.  That's what you're asking, right?
I assume you're accessing programmatically and are concerned about performance?  You can write a script to perform the queries and write the data to a text file (XML), then use the XML for quick access by the application.
Hi Wanda035,

What do you mean by title?

Also, can you post the code you're currently using? I may be able to modify it to achieve what you wish for.

   thank you both for the information .   Yes we are going agter this programatically -  I was trying to see if there was a
   way to accomplish what I needed without having to query for each  'member of' user object.  
   title is a Active Directory that we populate with a associates title.     We are working on a approval process, and looking
   vp's of each dept.  The problem is we have vp's that are over multiple depts so they are located in one  Active driectory
   brach - but a member of multiple branches.
