    A N Y W A Y . . . . .

    Elyzion, thanks for the sample - Looks good from what I can tell through Terminal Services, I'll have a proper look at it in the morning when I'm back in front of my desktop.. terminal servicing in through a small 12 inch laptop just doesn't quite work well when it comes to VS :)

    Well, for what its worth, here are the screenshots of the process in question from the current web-based version. Before anyone criticises the look of it, its under development ;)

    The first page collects the basic user data:

    The second page queries AD to check for duplicate account names, and returns back a list of acceptable alternatives in the case of a duplicate:

    The third page allows the user to navigate down through a tree to decide where in the companies AD structure to create the new user:

    The last page confirms the details before kicking off the page which creates the user, does all the AD trickey with groups, sets up the DFS share and queues the user to have a notes account created:

    From what I've seen so far, this can all be achieved by using either panels or tabs, unless someone is going to tell me that either one isn't going to flow well with this type of process :confused:

    Because its not small and complex i think this would be best done using the Panel/UserControls aproach in that file i uploaded.

    Being a workflow user controls are definitely the right way to go. Using a tab control would be like... using a hammer to dig a hole. A total hack.
