I'm not sure the question is specific enough on what you want.
To get a list of user profiles, you can just dir "C:\Documents and Settings" to get the list of profiles stored in the server.
As for exporting it to csv, depends on which details you want to export. If it's only the list of names inside the directory above, it will be enough to save one name per line.

To get a list of user accounts on a workstation you could use :

wmic /output:test.csv useraccount
