Query LDAP using VB6

I was given the task to add LDAP functionality in a VB6 app but I have no LDAP experience. I am able to get some of what I'm looking for but not everything. Take a look at the namespace doc supplied to me at http://www.mikkeee.com/misc/namespace.gif.

-com
--corphome
---people
----people
----executives
----union
----international
---pseudo-accounts
----franchisees
----consultants
----vendors

Dim sConn As String
    sConn = "LDAP://parr.corphome.com:636/dc=com/dc=corphome/ou=people/cn=johndoe")
    Set LDAPinfo = GetObject(sConn)
    MsgBox  "Name:" & LDAPinfo.Get("Parrpayname")

The above allows me to get what I want when I'm looking into the people ou but the problem I'm facing is that I also need to search in the vendors ou which is under pseudo-accounts.

sConn = "LDAP://parr.corphome.com:636/dc=com/dc=corphome/ou=pseudo-accounts/ou=people/cn=johndoe")
This does not work.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks

I don't know if this will work or not but if MsgBox  LDAPinfo.Get("pseudo-accounts") returns the name of the account you want then.
Dim sPseudoAccount as string
sPseudoAccount = LDAPinfo.Get("pseudo-accounts")

sPseudoAccount should contain "CompanyABC"
You want to build the next string with the value of what sPseudoAccount contains.
That is where the @ comes in.  It tells the computer to use the value that the variable is holding, otherwise you would be using the name of the variable.

sConn = "LDAP://parr.corphome.com:636/dc=com/dc=corphome/ou=" & @sPseudoAccount  & "/ou=people/cn=johndoe")

Hope this helps or at least points you in the right direction, I haven't used LDAP before.

Thanks
