Hi,

Try this :

    dsquery user -name *  | dsget user -ln -fn >
    users.txt

You don't care about the kind of separator, since Excel will be able to deal with it, whether comma, tab or other.

If you absolutely need a comma for presentation purposes, you can add it afterwards in your Excel sheet.

Hope this helps
Cheers

Sorry, I added a carriage return. Of course the whole query stands in one line...

dsquery user -name *  | dsget user -ln -fn  > users.txt
