String Splits

3 posts in this topic

Below I have a snippet of code. I am using string split to get the distinguished name of a user. (cn=user,ou=accounts,dc=domain,dc=com). I am returning the string and want to strip off the cn=user part to return just the last part of the DN. The problem I am running into is that the number of strings[x] that I have can change with "," as the delimiter. So the subtree can be deeper in Active Directory such as $strDestinationOU[7] and some maybe $strDestinationOU[10]. I would like to just return everything after "cn=user," no matter the length of the remaining string, but I cannot find a solution as of yet.

$strDestinationOU = StringSplit($strUserDN, ',')
            $destinationString = $strDestinationOU[2] & "," & $strDestinationOU[3] & "," & $strDestinationOU[4] & "," & $strDestinationOU[5] & "," & $strDestinationOU[6] & "," & $strDestinationOU[7] & "," & $strDestinationOU[8]
            MsgBox(64,"",$DestinationString)

$strDestinationOU[0] contains the number of splitted strings, so just do:

$strDestinationOU = StringSplit($strUserDN, ',')
For $i=2 To $strDestinationOU[0]
   If $i<$strDestinationOU[0] Then
       $destinationString =$destinationString & $strDestinationOU[$i] & ","
   Else
       $destinationString =$destinationString & $strDestinationOU[$i]
   EndIf
Next
MsgBox(64,"",$DestinationString)
