Query Collection in SCCM for members

Good Morning,

I'm trying to query the SCCM database to get the members of a collection. I'm trying to do this in vb.net. I found a script on Microsofts website but couldn't get it to work. I also know how to connect to the SCCM database but not sure how to grab a collection and then export it to a text file or show it in a VB.net List Box. Here's the code i got from microsoft.

' Set up a connection to the local provider.
Set swbemLocator = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
Set swbemServices= swbemLocator.ConnectServer(".", "root\sms")
Set providerLoc = swbemServices.InstancesOf("SMS_ProviderLocation")

For Each Location In providerLoc
    If location.ProviderForLocalSite = True Then
        Set swbemServices = swbemLocator.ConnectServer(Location.Machine, "root\sms\site_" + Location.SiteCode)
        Exit For
    End If
Next

Call EnumerateCollectionMembers(swbemServices)

Sub EnumerateCollectionMembers(connection)

' Set required variables.
' Note:  Values must be manually added to the queries below.

    ' The following example shows how to enumerate the members of the All Systems (SMS00001) collection.
    Query1 = "SELECT ResourceID FROM SMS_FullCollectionMembership WHERE CollectionID = 'SMS00001'" 
    
    ' Run query.
    Set ListOfResources1 = connection.ExecQuery(Query1, , wbemFlagForwardOnly Or wbemFlagReturnImmediately)

    ' The query returns a collection that needs to be enumerated.
    Wscript.Echo " "
    Wscript.Echo "Query: " & Query1
    For Each Resource1 In ListOfResources1     
        Wscript.Echo Resource1.ResourceID   
    Next
    
    ' A slower alternative is to use the SMS_CollectionMember_a association class.
    Query2 = "SELECT ResourceID FROM SMS_CollectionMember_a WHERE CollectionID = 'SMS00001'" 
    
    ' Run query.
    Set ListOfResources2 = connection.ExecQuery(Query2, , wbemFlagForwardOnly Or wbemFlagReturnImmediately)

    ' The query returns a collection that needs to be enumerated.
    Wscript.Echo " "
    Wscript.Echo "Query: " & Query2
    For Each Resource2 In ListOfResources2     
        Wscript.Echo Resource2.ResourceID   
    Next
    
    ' A further alternative is to query the members by using the actual collection class name specified in the MemberClassName property of SMS_Collection. 
    Query3 = "SELECT ResourceID FROM SMS_CM_Res_Coll_SMS00001" 
    
    ' Run query.
    Set ListOfResources3 = connection.ExecQuery(Query3, , wbemFlagForwardOnly Or wbemFlagReturnImmediately)

    ' The query returns a collection that needs to be enumerated.
    Wscript.Echo " "
    Wscript.Echo "Query: " & Query3
    For Each Resource3 In ListOfResources3     
        Wscript.Echo Resource3.ResourceID   
    Next

End Sub

You can export a collection using the console if you want.
