    I need to connect to Active Directory through LDAP in Microsoft Access. Is this possible?

    Please excuse my ignorance, but what is Active Directory and LDAP? :confused:
    is LDAP a program and is Active Directory a location or folder?

    Active Directory is an implementation of LDAP directory services by Microsoft for use in Windows environments. Active Directory allows administrators to assign enterprise-wide policies, deploy programs to many computers, and apply critical updates to an entire organization. An Active Directory stores information and settings relating to an organization in a central, organized, accessible database. Active Directory networks can vary from a small installation with a few hundred objects, to a large installation with millions of objects

    Ok thanks for that, so does that mean that you want to "Link" to the "Active Directory Database", just run LDAP from Access or Open the "Active Directory Database" from Access with LDAP type controls?
