here's a script:

Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConnection.Open "Provider=ADsDSOObject;"

Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

objCommand.CommandText = _
 "<GC://cn=g_test,ou=global groups,ou=abc users,dc=abc,dc=com>;(objectCategory=Group);" & _
 "distinguishedName,name,member;subtree"

Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute

While Not objRecordSet.EOF
 Wscript.Echo objRecordSet.Fields("Name")
 Wscript.Echo "[" & _
 objRecordSet.Fields("distinguishedName") & "]"

 Wscript.Echo "Group Member(s):"
 arrMembers = objRecordSet.Fields("member")

 If IsArray(objRecordSet.Fields("member")) Then
 For Each strMember in arrMembers
 Wscript.Echo vbTab & strMember
 Next
 Else
 Wscript.Echo vbTab & "None"
 End If
 Wscript.Echo VbCrLf
 objRecordSet.MoveNext
Wend

objConnection.Close


it shows the members of global group g_test, which is in the organizational unit global groups, which is in the organizational unit abc users, which is in the abc.com forest (or tree?) the output looks something like this:

g_AAReadyToTest
[CN=g_AAReadyToTest,OU=z_EMCINS Global Groups,OU=EMC Users,DC=EMCINS,DC=com]
Group Member(s):
        CN=Ross,OU=Data,OU=Data Processing,OU=Home Office
,OU=abc Users,DC=abc,DC=com
        CN=Dawn,OU=Data,OU=Data Processing,OU=Home Office,
OU=abc Users,DC=abc,DC=com


hope this helps!

The following code did what I wanted.  Thanks

'---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Public Function MembersOfGroup(strGroup, strDomain, strMember As String) As Boolean
    Dim adsGroup As ActiveDs.IADsGroup
    Dim adsMembers As ActiveDs.IADsMembers
    Dim adsMember As Object
    Dim strMemberName As String
       
On Error Resume Next

    Set adsGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" + strDomain + "/" + strGroup)

    MembersOfGroup = False

If Err.Number = 0 Then

    Err.Clear
    On Error GoTo 0
   
    Set adsMembers = adsGroup.Members
    Set oCol = New Collection
   
    adsMembers.Filter = Array("Members")

    For Each adsMember In adsMembers
       
        If adsMember.Name = strMember Then
            MembersOfGroup = True
            Exit For
        End If
       
        If adsMember.Name = strUserName Then
            strGroupMembers = "1"
        End If
       
    Next adsMember
   
    Set adsMember = Nothing
    Set adsMembers = Nothing
    Set adsGroup = Nothing
End If

End Function
