I'm running Exchange server 2000.  I would like to export all my AD account details into Excel?

Account details such as:

Name, Initials, Office, Description, Email, Telephone, Fax, Mobile, Title, Company etc etc

I cannot find a way to export all the details.  I see an option to export an OU but this does not give me all the details....

The below will return what you requested above. The Limit 0 tells it to return all matching acocunts.

dsquery user -samid * -limit 0 | dsget user -ln -fn -office -desc -email -tel -fax -mobile -title -company

Other pieces of information needed can be added by using the switches here

At the end of your command just put >outfile.txt to save it to a file. Then you can import it into excel.

dsquery is part of the "Windows 2003 Administration Tools Pack".  You will have to download, install it.

Or you can run the command from any workstation that has access to AD and these tools installed. As long as it can query AD the report can be run from anywhere.

Use simple csvde command to get all the information for every AD Object into Excel.

Command would be

csvde -f C:\ADoutput.csv.
