Can you please help me with this small code?
 
The below script works fine if the group is set to Group-1 and gives me a proper count (Group-1 has 87 members). But once i change the group name to Group-2 (Group-2 has only one member) the script throws an error (attached). But once the count becomes 2 in Group-2 the script works fine. Please help
i = 0
Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://CN=GG-IN-VDI Group-1,OU=Server Groups,OU=Groups,OU=FirstOU,DC=in,DC=domain,DC=org")
For Each strUser in objGroup.Member
i = i + 1
Next
Msgbox i

Hi, you need to check the TypeName of the Member property.

Regards,

Rob.
i = 0
Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://CN=GG-IN-VDI Group-1,OU=Server Groups,OU=Groups,OU=FirstOU,DC=in,DC=domain,DC=org")
If TypeName(objGroup.Member) = "Empty" Then
	' No members
ElseIf TypeName(objGroup.Member) = "String" Then
	i = i + 1
Else
	For Each strUser in objGroup.Member
	i = i + 1
	Next
End If
Msgbox i
