Hi All
What would be the best query to use in retrieving the name, dept, Email address, and Phone number of all active users excluding groups from my active directory?

Hello, what about this one?
dsquery user dc=yourdomain,dc=com | dsget user -samid -dept -email -phone

I don't know what do you mean by "excluding groups". The commands mentioned will not list groups at all, just users.

I really like adfind by MVP Joe Richards for this
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm
adfind -default -f "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)" -nodn name samaccountname department mail telephonenumber -csv > c:\Myusers.csv
Wasn't sure if you wanted the name or samaccountname.  That will create a csv file on your C drive, open that in Excel and that should be what you need.
Thanks
Mike
