I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here you go.  It expects an input text file at   c:\iplist.txt      that has one IP address per line.

Output will be a csv file  formatted as follows:

IP,host name, ping statistics

Set oWS = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set inFile = oFS.OpenTextFile("C:\IPlist.txt")
Set outFile = oFS.CreateTextFile("C:\names.csv")
Do While Not inFile.AtEndOfStream
	write = ""
	IP = inFile.ReadLine
	cmd = "ping -a " & IP
	Set ExecOutput = oWS.Exec(cmd)
	Set Output = ExecOutput.StdOut
	While Not Output.AtEndOfStream
		data = Output.ReadLine
		If Left(data,7) = "Pinging" Then
			name = Split(data," ")
			write = IP & "," & name(1) & ","
		End If
		If InStr(data,"Packets:") Then
			write = write & Left(Right(data,Len(data)-4),Len(Right(data,Len(data)-4))-2)
		End If
