So I have gotten this far from information I have found but what I need to get is the names of the individuals that belong to this group and not the actual groupd name.  Don't query active Directory much so don't really know what I am doing.  How do i get the personnel whom belong to this group.

select cn, distinguishedName

from openquery(ADSI,'SELECT cn, distinguishedName

FROM "Sever Name"

WHERE objectCategory = ''group''

and CN = ''NGMN SEC J6 Voc''

')

Have a look at spQueryAD (http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=1273100&page=2)

I created that SP on MSSQL 2008, and then an SSIS to load the data into a MSSQL Table and sort them out the way I need.

Hope this helps.

Jerryuk007,

i will have to look into that for future use, currently I am trying to trace some Vb code that hits AD and gets the users that fall under this account and then emails them.  So I would have to put a lot of work into changing the whole thing, which I don't have time to do.  Just wondering if there is a way to get the users that belong to this distribution account.

Really was not the solution but wanted to award some popints for the code, but this question did not give me a choice to accept my solution and award points to others.
