Undefined index Error - PHP LDAP

Posted on 2008-10-17
Last Modified: 2013-12-19
I'm using php to display users from the LDAP and i'm trying to output their usernames, so i am using this piece of code:
    for ($i=0; $i < $entries["count"]; $i++)
        echo $entries[$i]["sAMAccountName"][0]."<br />";

Although this produces the following error for each user:
Notice: Undefined index: sAMAccountName in C:\xampp\htdocs\test4.php on line 45

Using 'displayname' works. Anyone know what is causing this?

Try the column name "SAMAccountName", maybe that helps

I had a script that had the same problem ones and I looked it up and I changed the column to the following name "samaccountname" all in lower case.
At this script to your code to see all the results maybe that can help you:

foreach ($entries[$i] as $k => $v) {
    echo "Key is ".$k;
