On line 37, how do I specify that I want the pre-Windows 2000 User logon name?

' Define needed constants
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2
Const TriStateUseDefault = -2

Dim arrNames()
intSize = 0

strDomain = "OU=example"

outputPath = "groups.txt"

strPUG = InputBox("Please enter the logon name.")
If strPUG = "" Then
      MsgBox "Operation has been cancelled." & vbCr & "Script will now exit.",vbOKOnly +vbCritical
      WScript.Quit
End If


      FileExists
      GetGroups
      Finish


Function FileExists
      Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      If objFSO.FileExists(outputPath) Then
            MsgBox "File " & outputPath & " already exists." & vbCr & "Please delete this file and re-run the script." & vbCr & "Script will now exit.",vbOKOnly +vbCritical
            WScript.Quit
      End If
End Function

Function GetGroups
      Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
      Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(outputPath, ForWriting, True)

      Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://CN=" & strPUG & "," & strDomain)
      Set colGroups = objUser.Groups

      For Each objGroup in colGroups
            objFile.WriteLine objGroup.CN
      Next
      objFile.Close
End Function

Function Finish
      MsgBox "Success. Please open the file groups.txt.  Script will now exit.", vbOKOnly +vbInformation

for pre login name use ADSystemInfo object in your script..

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
strUserDN = objSysInfo.UserName
Wscript.Echo strUserDN

The problem is that "objSysInfo.Username" returns the information of the person that executes the script.

What I want to do is use the InputBox to type in the pre-Windows 2000 logon name and have it process all of the groups that the user is a member of (into the groups.txt file).

Currently the only way I have to get the list of groups that a user is a member of is with this script below.  As you can see, I have to prompt for the user's Last, First, and Middle intial.  What would be easier is if I could simply prompt for the pre-Windows 2000 logon name because then I would have only 1 input box.

' Define needed constants
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2
Const TriStateUseDefault = -2

Dim arrNames()
intSize = 0

strDomain = "example"

outputPath = "groups.txt"


strLast = InputBox("Please enter the last name.")
strFirst = InputBox("Please enter the first name.")
strMid = InputBox("Please enter middle initial.")

GetGroups
Finish

Function GetGroups
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(outputPath, ForWriting, True)
Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://CN=" & strLast & "\, " & strFirst & " " & strMid & "," & strDomain)

Set colGroups = objUser.Groups

For Each objGroup in colGroups
      objFile.WriteLine objGroup.CN
Next
objFile.Close
End Function

Function Finish
      MsgBox "Success. Please open the file groups.txt.  Script will now exit.", vbOKOnly +vbInformation
End Function
