Active Directory - Get Members of Dynamic Group

Using the Active Directory (AD) connector in Power Query (latest ver), I'm able to view all groups, but i'm not able to 'Expand' to Group.Member on AD groups that are Dynamic, or those groups that use LDAP queries to populate them.


Is this a feature/limitation of AD or a bug perhaps?


Here's the code that should return all users in a group.   


    Source = ActiveDirectory.Domains(""), = Source{[Domain=""]}[#"Object Categories"],
    group1 ={[Category="group"]}[Objects],
    #"Expanded securityPrincipal" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(group1, "securityPrincipal", {"sAMAccountName"}, {"securityPrincipal.sAMAccountName"}),
    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(#"Expanded securityPrincipal", each [securityPrincipal.sAMAccountName] = "ALL-EmplsAndContractors"),
    #"Expanded group" = Table.ExpandRecordColumn(#"Filtered Rows", "group", {"member"}, {"group.member"}),
    #"Expanded group.member" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Expanded group", "group.member")
    #"Expanded group.member"

I found a post here with some code that I am trying to adapt


It's a blog post.

If I get anywhere I will update this post.

Anyone get an answer on this?  I would really like to get the number of users per group.  I can see the count when I click on the List field for the record but would love to bring this value forward to report on it.
