Copy AD group membership from one group to another

Here is a good VB script for copying the group membership from one Active Directory group to another:
strSGroupDN = InputBox ("Enter the DN of Source Group" & VBCRLF &_
vbcrlf& _
vbcrlf& _
"e.g. CN=Source Group,OU=Users,DC=NWTraders,DC=com")
strDGroupDN = InputBox ("Enter the DN of Destination Group" & VBCRLF &_
vbcrlf& _
vbcrlf& _
"e.g. CN=Destination Group,OU=Users,DC=NWTraders,DC=com")
set dicSeenGroupMember = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
set objDGroup = GetObject("LDAP://" & strDGroupDN)
DisplayMembers "LDAP://" & strSGroupDN, dicSeenGroupMember
Function DisplayMembers (strGroupADsPath, dicSeenGroupMember)
set objGroup = GetObject(strGroupADsPath)
for each objMember In objGroup.Members
objDGroup.Add("LDAP://" & objMember.distinguishedName)
End Function
MsgBox "Group Members have been copied to Destination Group"

Quotation marks are not required when entering values into the input boxes, even if your DN has spaces in it.
