Hi -

Using Sharepoint 2007 as an end-user collection administrator.
I know I've seen a function that shows which groups each member of a site collection belongs to.

x user belongs to y group, z group....

Please tell me where to look to find it.  Thank you.

There are no direct way to see the users and then the groups they belong to in a site collection.

However you can see them if you install SharePoint Administration Toolkit on the farm. Once you install and configure the toolkit successfully, you should be able to see a link in the site settings under: Users and Permissions and then click on  Check Effective Permissions. This will ask you for user and then show you the groups it belong to.

Alternatvely you can use 3rd party tools for such kind of reporting. ControlPoint should be useful for such reports.

Give a go to this and let me know how it goes.
Cheers!

You are correct, and given I'm an end-user in a corporation without access to admin unfortunately I can't access what I was hoping to.  Thanks for the information.
