Finding an Aliased Object in ActiveX
Articles and Tips: tip
01 Mar 2001
If you need to find out which object an Alias is referencing, you won't be able to simply read the "Aliased Object Nam" attribute, because it's the Alias and not the object that it references that actually has the attribute.
By using the context flags, the low-level APIs allow you to choose what you prefer, but the ActiveX controls don't allow for this. However, you can still get the referenced object's real name as follows:
If obj.Alias Then v = obj.GetFieldValue("CN", "n/a", False) List1.AddItem ("Aliased Object: " & v) End If
