Getting Short Name from NAB for a member of a group

I'm trying to get the short name field out of the nab for individual members of a group in the nab.

My attempts so far are below with the problem (at least the first one) is that the evaluate statement for
searchname is evaluating to a blank.  The first part works (it brings back the group members names in the following format CN = John Smith/OU=xyz/O=abc).  So i basically want to convert that to John Smith, go to the $VIMPeople View of the NAB and extract the shortname from the document.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Instead of $VIMPeople, use .getView("($Users)")

You can drop the whole Evaluate.  Just use nabView2.getDocumentByKey(member,true) -- because that view includes all users sorted by canonical name (CN=...)
