I'm currently using the following code to get a listing of all the domains in my LAN. It works fine, but every once in a while, GetObject returns nothing, and I have to recursively call the same routine untill it returns data. I'm confused as to why this is happenning. Can someone help?

Here is the code:

 Dim objNS As IADsContainer
 Dim objDomain As IADs
   
   Set objNS = GetObject("WinNT:")
 
   For Each objDomain In objNS
      cmbDomain.AddItem objDomain.Name
   Next
   
   MsgBox cmbDomain.ListCount
   
   If cmbDomain.ListCount = 0 Then
      Call Form_Load
   End If

maybe this is because of a timeout while getting the object...

use:

Do
   Set objNS = GetObject("WinNT:")
Loop until  not (objNS Is Nothing)

instead of your recursive way.
