VBScript: LastLogonTimeStamp

I have a script below that appears to work well, unfortunately it's set to "echo" back and does not produce a results file.  I'm curious if someone could take a look at it and edit it so that it produces a nice need Tab dilimited or Comma Separated file that will align my DN path up correctly.  My DN path goes several OU layers deep and because of this it can throw the columns off and cause data to overlap into the other columns.
