Michael.  THANKS!!!  That is great input.  I tested and got my need met.  I'll 
review during the light of day to attempt comprehension.  Thank, again.  You 
are a lifesaver!

You got your schema wrong...
 
(&
    (mailnickname=*)
    (|
        (&
            (objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(company=CompanyName)
        )
        (&
            (objectCategory=group)(displayName=*SuffixDisplayName)
        )         (&
            
(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=contact)(displayName=PrefixxDisplayName*)
        )

    )
)

http://www.MSExchange.org/ Michael, 
 
Your input is working like a champ; however, i seem not to be able to take your 
input and run with it.  I'm trying to get more complex and add another set of 
objects in the query below to get users, groups and contacts all back together. 
 I'm looking to see if you can identify my struggles.  
 
Here is my query...
(&
    (mailnickname=*)
    (|
        (&
            (objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(company=CompanyName)
        )
        (&
            (objectCategory=group)(displayName=*SuffixDisplayName)
        )         (&
            (objectCategory=contact)(displayName=PrefixxDisplayName*)
        )

    )
)

 

You can see that I just added another object type and criteria for that object, 
but the result set does not come back with contacts included.  

I appreciate your time inadvance!   
Thanks, 
C

ADU&C and ESM allow you to build fairly complex queries - by example. In ADU&C, 
click "Action -> Find".
 
When I need an LDAP browser, I tend to use Softerra's LDAP Browser. It's free.
 
Insofar as your specific query is concerned, I generally like to indent things 
to show the program flow ('cuz a query is a program, albeit a very limited one, 
of a sort). So something like this...
 
(&
    (mailnickname=*)
    (|
        (&
            (objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(company=CompanyName)
        )
        (&
            (objectCategory=group)(displayName=*SuffixDisplayName)
        )
    )
)

Subject: [exchangelist] Customizing an Address List



http://www.MSExchange.org/ Hello.  I'm new to the list.  Please excuse if this 
has already been covered.  

I'm attempting to customize an Address List in Exchange2003 and am having 
trouble creating the query I want.  

I want a query which has certain users (based on Company field in AD) and 
certain groups (based on the last few characters of the displayName) in the 
list.

Each of the above work individually and I get back the results correctly.  I'm 
just not sure how to get the query to return both sets of data, nor do I know 
if that is allowed. 

Here are the specifics: 

This is my user query: 
(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| 
(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(|(homeMDB=*)(msExchHomeServerName=*)))
 )))(objectCategory=user)(company=CompanyName)))

it returns the right list of Exchange Users. 

This is my Group Query:
(&(&(&(& (mailnickname=*) (| (objectCategory=group) 
)))(objectCategory=group)(displayName=*SuffixDisplayName)))

I want the contents of my address list to be a combination of the above.   
However, I'm struggling.  I've tried various combinations of the above to get 
the right results back.  I've walked through the GUI, selecting mailbox enabled 
users and groups and added (under advanced) the criteria for users and for 
groups.  

I'm assuming the Anding and Or'ing of it all isn't working out.  The samples 
I've seen on MSDN are exceedingly simple.  I'd like to find a tool which 
allowed Query By Example functionality like MS Access provides, except against 
and LDAP source, but haven't found something like that. 


Any input is appreciated.  

Thanks,
C
