VB 2008 Searching My network Places for Computers

In my network environment we have about 3500 workstations with a fairly reliable naming convention, t the workstations name is a combination of the location and the workstation asset tag.  For example a typical workstation name looks like this, CAS2CIS15662, the asset tag is attached to the workstation so that is the name the users provide when they call in our we need to connect to one of them, or we'll get a list of asset tags that need to be resolved to the full workstation name.  What I'd like to do is create a small application that I could drop in a list of asset tags and have it resolve the workstations names.  So, to make a long story short, I'd like to be able to query AD with one or more partial workstation names and have it the list back with the full computer names.  If someone has a line or two of code they could throw my way I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Michael

:) nothing to worry about MKC06, that shouldnt be the problem. There are online converters, which can do a conversion job to VB. Like this one
