Hey guys.

I have a program that extracts the members of a group using the NetGroupGetUsers function. It used to work fine until we migrated to Active Directory. The user that runs the function is set as domain administrator so I don't believe that there is a security issue here. The error code that is returned by the function is 2220 which means the the group isnt't found.

I have checked the name with the LAN and there is no spelling errors.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Luc.

Or just use this

'member in group
Dim grp As IADsGroup
Dim memberList As IADsMembers
Dim member As IADs

Set grp = GetObject("WinNT://yourdomainname/Administrators")
Set memberList = grp.members
For Each member In memberList
  Debug.Print member.Name & "(" & member.Class & ")"
Next

What do I need to reference to make this work? I get a "user-defined type not defined" error on the IADsGroup type.

Thanks.
