I need to export the name of each OU, Security Group and Distribution Groups along with their members names to a text file.  Our domain name is FSS.local and our DC is FSSFS.  Does anyone have a clue how to do this?

at the command line

net users /domain
will get you a list of users

net groups /domain
will get you a list of groups

you can direct them into a text file like this
net users /domain>USERS.TEXT
net groups /domain>>USERS.TEXT

For security group membership, create a batch file that reads:
cscript listgroup.vbs>grouplist.txt

Create a vbs file named "listgroup.vbs" containing:

On Error Resume Next
Set objGroup = GetObject _
  ("LDAP://cn=<groupname>;ou=<path to group>;dc=FSS,dc=local")
objGroup.GetInfo
arrMemberOf = objGroup.GetEx("member")
WScript.Echo "<groupname>"
For Each strMember in arrMemberOf
  WScript.echo strMember
Next

This will create a file named whatever you put in place of <groupname>. You'd have to do this with each security group or distribution list.

Is there a way to get the users of a distribution group into a text file?

I would suggest something like adfind or powershell.  Michael Smith has a good overview of doing this with adfind

In addition to that if you want to export the OUs and their names
adfind -default -f objectcategory=organizationalunit name
Thanks
Mike

Here's a script that will prompt for the DNS domain name, and group name, then put the user info into an Excel spreadsheet.  Note:  Assumes you have Excel installed on the computer you're running it on.
Group-Members-to-Excel.vbs.txt

Here is another script which you can use to get all groups and group member details:
