VB Script Needed to query user information from AD

I am needing to gain a list of users in a specific security or distribution group.  For example the query needs to provide the following information in a csv file.

first name,last name,username,email address

It would be nice if when the script is executed it would pop up a window asking for the specific group name to query.

You'll need to change the domain value.

'Script begins here
'writes the names and e-mail addresses of the members of the domain group entered by user
'to a csv file on the users desktop

Dim objGroup, objUser, objFSO, objFile, objShell, objObject
Dim strDomain, strGroup, Domain, Group, strUserName, strEmail, strLName, strFName, strUserProfilePath, strPhone

      'local domain
strDomain = "MyDomain"

      'prompt for the name of the group whose members we want to export
strGroup = InputBox ("Enter AD group you want to export", "Group Name?")

      'create file system and shell objects
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

      'get path to logged on users profile so we can write to their desktop directory
strUserProfilePath = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%UserProfile%")

      'create destination text file in users desktop directory
      'name it the same as the group being queried
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strUserProfilePath & "\Desktop\" & strGroup & ".csv")

      'get the specified group in the specified domain
Set objGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & strDomain & "/" & strGroup & ",group")


      'iterate through the user objects in the group
      'ignore non-user objects such as nested groups
For Each objUser In objGroup.Members
      strUserName = objUser.Name
            'set ADODB connection to LDAP so we can query for this user object and retrieve field values

      objCommand.CommandText = strQueryText
