Hi Experts,

I'm looking for an efficient VBA function that can search for LDAP (AD) items base on who is logged in.
In this case, I'm looking for "Direct Reports" usernames.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your reply. The Code on your link worked like a charm! I can see AD object now!

Now since the schema is a sea of information. How do you will approach the search in my point of view?

In my case, if I have a username of AD, I want to know their "chain of command" one level up and one level down. For example, If I'm a supervisor, I want to get the usernames of my direct reports (down) and my manager (up).

Any ideas?
