I need to produce a report, txt or preferably xls that lists all the groups in the Bizmark OU and all of the members of those groups, filtering out computer accounts.  also, i'd like to list the firstname lastname instead of logon name; all logon names are by empoyee ID and are non intuitive.

I'd like teh report to look something like this.

sales
  Burt Blylevin
  Luke Longley
  Jeb Springfield
marketing
 paul allen
 charles zesterhaus

etc.

Im still new with VBS and I'm still having trouble.

if my full AD path is LDAP://OU=SALES, DC=hq, DC=nt, DC=domain, DC=com

how would I ensure that this OU is the focus ?

I'm still having some problems, and I think im doing something wrong.

How would I change the code to have it look in this one OU and create an xl file with all the information present in the user objects ?

using LDAP://OU=SALES, DC=hq, DC=nt, DC=domain, DC=com, I replaced the set objRootDSE statement but I'm not sure how to proceed.
