I am trying to get different domains, their groups and users in groups from active directory server using LDAP. First of all I have to populate the listing of all the groups and their domains from active dir in combo box,  now user can select any group from this combo. As soon as user selects this group all the user belonging to this group will be displayed in datagrid with thier attributes like first name, last name, email, address, phone from active dir.
Any help in this regard would be appriciated.
I have tried to used the Active DS Type library in VB6 and successfully implemented the above functionality but i want generic solution using LDAP.  

Is there any way to get default domain using Active DS Type library?

I have checked this but it is not what i needed. I want to get all domains first then after selecting any domain i will get all its groups and when any one selects any groups all its user should be displayed with their attributes in the grid. Actually i need to get displayed all the existing domains, groups and users in active dir but every thing depends on the next one

try something like this to get domains

Set objWinNT = GetObject("WinNT:")
For Each objDomain In objWinNT

Hamood, try this one:

 Dim oRoot, oDomain, sDomain
 
 Set oRoot = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
 sDomain = oRoot.Get("defaultNamingContext")
 Set oDomain = GetObject("LDAP://" & sDomain)
