Use the "LDIFDE" utility

Here is the info for more help.

LDIFDE is a great tool, but it will output data in column format, rather than the table format needed by excel

CSVDE will do it in table format if you wish

However, both tools are only supplied on a Server installation of the OS and neither are particularly simple to use, which is why I suggested DUMPSEC (which has a nice GUI too!)

JamesDS,

To each their own, I guess....

I prefer to use LDIFDE to modify or delete, csvde.exe when I am just getting users in non-exchange domains.  I have not used the dumpsec tool.  The thing is if your going to work with AD for long these two tools are great to know.  Add a little mail merg and you can do quite a few things.

Is DUMPSEC free/shareware?

That Dumpsec app is pretty cool.
I just create a query, export it to comma seperated text, and rename it to a csv file.
