I have a need here at work to create a text file of the currently logged in user (at login) that would enumberate the groups the user is a member of and write it to a text file. I have a function I use to enumerate the groups, but I do not know how to read the dictionary itself and write those values to a text file. Here is the function I use at logon to identify the groups;

Function IsMember(sGroup)
 Dim sAdsPath, oUser, oGroup
 If IsEmpty(oGroupDict) Then
     Set oGroupDict         = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
     oGroupDict.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
     sAdsPath  = oNet.UserDomain & "/" & oNet.UserName
     Set oUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & sAdsPath & ",user")
     For Each oGroup In oUser.Groups
         oGroupDict.Add oGroup.Name, "-"
     Next
     Set oUser = Nothing
 End If
 IsMember = CBool(oGroupDict.Exists(sGroup))
End Function

Any help would be appreciated

Here's the sort of thing you could use.

strOutputFilePath = "C:\GroupsList.txt"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objOutputFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strOutputFilePath, True)
For Each strKey In oGroupDict.Keys
   objOutputFile.WriteLine strKey
Next
objOutputFile.Close

So I put it into the function, as follows, and it works as advertised. Thank you so much for your help.

Function IsMember(sGroup)
Dim sAdsPath, oUser, oGroup

strOutputFilePath = strShare & "\" & strComputer & "_group.log"
Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objOutputFile = oFSO.CreateTextFile(strOutputFilePath, True)
 
 If IsEmpty(oGroupDict) Then
     Set oGroupDict         = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
     oGroupDict.CompareMode = vbTextCompare
     sAdsPath  = oNet.UserDomain & "/" & oNet.UserName
     Set oUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & sAdsPath & ",user")
     For Each oGroup In oUser.Groups
         oGroupDict.Add oGroup.Name, "-"
     Next
     For Each strKey In oGroupDict.Keys
    objOutputFile.WriteLine strKey
      Next
      objOutputFile.Close
     Set oUser = Nothing
 End If
 IsMember = CBool(oGroupDict.Exists(sGroup))
End Function
