get-qaduser -createdafter 1/15/2011

You can query AD to text file, import it to Excel and filter result with your criteria. To export that run on a DC or workstation with Administrative Tools/RSAT installed and in command-line type

dsquery * -filter "(&(objectCategory=User)(objectClass=User)(sAMAccountName=*))" -attr givenName sn sAMAccountName whenCreated >>c:\users.txt

Try this:
change line 1 to the OU and DC enteries to your info: Set oConfig = GetObject("LDAP://OU=ORG UNIT TO QUEREY, dc=DOMAINNAME, dc=LOCAL OR COM"

change line 10 to the date to how many days from today back to look for "If d > Now() - 10 Then" (ie 10 days)

Set oConfig = GetObject("LDAP://OU=ORG UNIT TO QUEREY, dc=DOMAINNAME, dc=LOCAL OR COM")
Set oConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
oConn.Provider = "ADSDSOObject"
oConn.Open ""

strQuery = "<" & oConfig.adspath & ">;(&(objectClass=user));cn,createTimeStamp;subtree"
Set oRS = oConn.Execute(strQuery)
While Not oRS.EOF
    d = oRS.Fields("createTimeStamp")
    If d > Now() - 10 Then
	 PUT OUTPUT LINE (ie msgbox oRS.Fields("cn"))
   end if
oRS.MoveNext
Wend

oConn.close
set oconfig = nothing
set oconn = nothing

Open in new window
