Can I create a vbs script the will use DSQuery and DSGet to find if a user is in a group?

What I want to do is take user ids from a txt file and first use DSQuery to see if they are in the Domain then use DSGet to see if they are in a group. If they are not in the group out put the user ID to a text file.

So is this doable in a vbs script?

This is an example of "Returns the members of an Active Directory group named Scientists."

On Error Resume Next
 
Set objGroup = GetObject _
  ("LDAP://cn=Scientists,ou=R&D,dc=NA,dc=fabrikam,dc=com")
objGroup.GetInfo
 
arrMemberOf = objGroup.GetEx("member")
 
WScript.Echo "Members:"
For Each strMember in arrMemberOf
  WScript.echo strMember
Next


If you need to write info on a txt file, this is an example:

Const ForAppending = 8
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile _
    ("c:\scripts\service_status.txt", ForAppending, True)
Set colServices =  GetObject("winmgmts:").ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Service")
For Each objService in colServices    
    objTextFile.WriteLine(objService.DisplayName & vbTab & _
        objService.State)
Next
objTextFile.Close
