I need a script that will output in a xls file the -LN, -FN -MI

I am using this but it will not output -LN, -FN -MI

C:\> dsquery user -limit 0 "OU=XXX,DC=XX,DC=XXX" | dsget user -ln -fn -mi -c

It outputs -FN -MI -LN, How do I get it in the order that I need it in?

C:\> dsquery user -limit 0 "OU=XXX,DC=XX,DC=XXX" | sort | dsget user -ln -fn -mi -c

another good tool for this is adfind by Joe Richards
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm
adfind -b "OU=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx" -f  "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)"  sn givenname initials -csv -nodn > c:\users.csv
That will create a csv file on your c drive
Thanks

That worked, Thanks.

Do you know if it would also output this way.

LASTNAME, FIRSTNAME MI

All in one cell with the comma after the lastname.

interesting followup  not sure, you can add an extra comma

adfind -b "OU=xxx,dc=xxx,dc=xxx" -f  "&(objectcategory=person)(objectclass=user)"  sn %,% givenname initials -csv -nodn > c:\users.csv
 ...but I'm not sure about all in one cell

All it did was create a %,% column.
