If your domain is TAS.NET, it should be something along the lines of:
adfind -b ou=qip,dc=tas,dc=net -f "objectcategory=group" member >> C:\a\GrpMembers.txt

You could use CSVDE, see here for examples: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/Logon_CSVDE_Export.htm

You could also use dsquery.

See some examples here from Chris-Dent: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_23725809.html

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Another option is to use ADFIND:

adfind -f "objectcategory=group" member >> C:\a\GrpMembers.txt

hi Chev,
 thanks for replying but I got this message when I apply your solution: 'adfind' is not recognized as an internal or external command,

although the GrpMember.txt has been created but it is empty.

Hi Ballack.
Apologies. ADFIND is not a windows native application, and you can get it here:

i have an OU called "QIP" and our domain is called "TAS" , inside that OU there is 80 groups and i want to export each group with its members individually in one file.

thank you Chev it worked but the output little bit complicated see this example:

dn:CN=Account Operators,CN=Builtin,DC=tas,DC=com,DC=qa
>member: CN=AdminG,OU=Service Accounts,DC=tas,DC=com,DC=qa
>member: CN=XJohn Philips,OU=Service Accounts,DC=tas,DC=com,DC=qa

can it be only names of the groups and members ??


i found one command but it's working only for individual group, I have to write it everytime for each group to get their members, it is:

net group "groupname" /domain> c:report.txt

You can use Excel to split the output into columns & then delete the unneeded data.

Always a pleasure!
Have a look at some of the other JoeWare tools - they are very handy.
ADFIND is quite powerful. Use ADFIND /?? to get the full manual.
