Hello,
Try something like this.

Set a reference to:
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.7 Library

Private Sub Command1_Click()
If DoesExist("your.domain.com", "username") Then
    MsgBox "User Exist"
Else
    MsgBox "User doesn't exist"
End If
End Sub

Private Function DoesExist(strDomain As String, strUser As String) As Boolean

Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
Set cnn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set cmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
cnn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
cnn.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = cnn
cmd.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
cmd.Properties("Timeout") = 30
cmd.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
cmd.Properties("Cache Results") = False

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name from 'LDAP://" & strDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory = 'user' AND SAMAccountName = '" & strUser & "'"

Set rs = cmd.Execute
If rs.EOF Then
    DoesExist = False
  Else
    DoesExist = True
End If

End Function

Hello again,
After looking at your question history it seems like you use vbscript.
The above code was for VB6.

This is vbscript.
You can also put the message boxes in the function itself instead of returning the true/false then displaying the message


if DoesExist("your.domain.com", "theUserName") then
   wscript.echo "Users Exists"
else
   wscript.echo "Users Doesn't Exist"
end if

function DoesExist(strDomain, strUser )

Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
Set cnn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set cmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
cnn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
cnn.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = cnn
cmd.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
cmd.Properties("Timeout") = 30
cmd.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
cmd.Properties("Cache Results") = False

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT name from 'LDAP://" & strDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory = 'user' AND SAMAccountName = '" & strUser & "'"

Set rs = cmd.Execute
If rs.EOF Then
    DoesExist = false
  Else
      DoesExist = true
End If

End function

wscript.quit
