Open administrative tools and DNS.  right click on the dns server and change the setting to store the records on file instead of Active Directory.  The files should be located in a subfolder of the windows directory, looking for more specific details.

Even easier...  Open administrative tools, DNS.  Find the zone you want to export, right click on the zone and select export list...  You can export in plain text, csv, tab delimited etc.

Hope that helps!

That is assuming a Windows DNS server.

If if is different please provide more details and I will see how else I can assist.

In windows click the start button --> programs --> administrative tools --> DNS.  When the dns control panel opens, click the plus sign beside the server and you should see forward and revers dns zones listed...  Likely you want your local zone listed, so open the forward zones, and select the domain for your organization...

Right click the domain for you organization, and you will see a context specific dialogue box open, select "export list..."

Next you will see a dialogue box to save the file.  Select the location to save the file, the desktop would be a fine place, type in a name for the file, and below that select the file type you want to export, ie text, csv, or tab delimited.  You will probably want to select text, but it depends on what you want to do with the file

Hope that helps, and let me know if I need to clarify any thing else.
