2003 ad script for enumeration

In active directory users and computers, each user has a type and description column. Is it possible to run a vbscript to enumerate user, type and description for every domain user and domain group in a domain (2003)? Similar to that seen below? I only have domain user credentials not domain admin credentials, but as I can see it in ADUC as a domain user I assume it can also be enumerated...

Hi,

You can try this code

Hmm, it returns data, but in ADUC against accounts there is often a comment in the description field, when I search for the description in the output of this query it doesnt find it...
