List computers mapped to a print queue

I need some help with writing a VB Script that can query the Active Directory to find out what computers are mapped to a specific print share. I know how to query the Active Directory to find what print share is mapped to a computer, or how to map a new print share to a computer in Active Directory, but I can't figure out or find any instruction on how to reverse the query.
For example: What computer, or computers, are mapped to \\servername\printshare01?

Things to consider:
- I am using Active Directory to map the print shares to the computers.
- When users login to the Domain, the login script will map the print share to the computer based on the information saved in Active Directory.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Can you post the script?

I think the most logical way to do this would be to use the same code that maps the printer, to produce of a list of computers it is mapping for.

I was able to create a script with a different logic. This scrip checks for all the computer accounts in a specif OU, and query every account for the what print share account is mapped to. If the result matches with the print share I am looking for, it will log the computer account to a log file. At the end, I have a list of all computers mapped to the specif print share I am looking for.
