Oh, I wasn't meant to include the filter.....

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=WAMC,ou=NARMC,dc=wwww,dc=xx,dc=yyyy,dc=zzz")
For Each objUser In objOU
   WScript.Echo objUser.Name & " - " & objUser.Class
Next

Hi there.

This will hopefully do the job for you, so far without saving or closing the resultant Excel file.

If you want that done, let me know.

For this to work for your particular OU, you'll need to set this line
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=TestUsers,OU=TestOU," & strDNSDomain)

to match your OU path, in reverse order.  For example, the above refers to
domain.com/TestOU/TestUsers

Regards,

Rob.
Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://OU=TestUsers,OU=TestOU," & strDNSDomain)
objOU.Filter = Array("User")
Set objList = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
For Each objUser In objOU
	strDept = UCase(objUser.Department)
	If objList.Exists(strDept) = True Then
		objList(strDept) = objList(strDept) & ";" & objUser.samAccountName
	Else
		objList.Add strDept, objUser.samAccountName
	End If
Next
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
objExcel.Visible = True
Const xlUp = -4162
Set objWB = objExcel.Workbooks.Add
While objWB.Sheets.Count > 1
	objWB.Sheets(objWB.Sheets.Count).Delete
Wend
For Each strDept In objList
	If objWB.Sheets(1).Name = "Sheet1" Then objWB.Sheets(1).Name = strDept
	boolSheetFound = False
	For intSheet = 1 To objWB.Sheets.Count
		If objWB.Sheets(intSheet).Name = strDept Then
			boolSheetFound = True
			Exit For
		End If
	Next
	If boolSheetFound = False Then
		objWB.Sheets.Add , objWB.Sheets(objWB.Sheets.Count)
		objWB.Sheets(objWB.Sheets.Count).Name = strDept
	End If
	intLastRow = objWB.Sheets(strDept).Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row
	If intLastRow = 1 Then
		objWB.Sheets(strDept).Cells(intLastRow, 1).Value = "Username"		
	End If
	arrUsers = Split(objList(strDept), ";")
	For Each strUser In arrUsers
		intLastRow = intLastRow + 1
		objWB.Sheets(strDept).Cells(intLastRow, 1).Value = strUser
	Next
Next

The problem I'm having is it appears objOU is returning an empty collection.
I'm sure the ldap path is correct as I use it in a miriad of other scripts.
(w,x,y,z are used for obscurity)

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=WAMC,ou=NARMC,dc=wwww,dc=xx,dc=yyyy,dc=zzz")
objOU.Filter = Array("user")
wscript.echo objOU.count
Set objList = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
For Each objUser In objOU
  strDept = UCase(objUser.Department)
  wscript.echo strDept
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm using the 1st wscript.echo  to try to show number of items returned by the query.
that wscript.echo line returns an error 8004001 error: Not Implemented.

The 2nd wscript.echo is used to see if I actually have a value in strDept. The script never sees that line. I'm still working with it.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hmmm, OK, without filtering the OU then, let's see what "class" of objects are in there....

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=WAMC,ou=NARMC,dc=wwww,dc=xx,dc=yyyy,dc=zzz")
objOU.Filter = Array("user")
For Each objUser In objOU
   WScript.Echo objUser.Name & " - " & objUser.Class
Next

I've never had much success with the Count property. I just loop through it an increment a manual counter....

Thank you for your assistance. While I had to tweak the code, it did the tricks. Another outstanding job.. Thanks...

No problem. Thanks for the grade.

So did you end up having to use
If objUser.Class = "user" Then

??

Actually I just made a SQL call through LDAP to AD (instead of the getobject) and then fed the record set into the scripting dictionary and your code did the rest! By using SQL I was able to filter and sort before feeding the data into the dictionary. I'm sure your way works great and I'm not saying my way is better. Sometimes we have to go with what we are familiar with. I was stuck on a clean way to add, rename and populate the individual sheets. The method you laid out was simple, clean and efficient.
