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
      Set RootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
      searchRoot = RootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")

      Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
      objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
      objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
      Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

      strQueryText = "<LDAP://" & searchRoot & ">;(&(objectCategory=Person)(samAccountName=" & strUserName &"));" _
            & "givenName,sn,mail,telephonenumber,ADsPath;SubTree"
      objCommand.CommandText = strQueryText
      objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 2000
      objCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 60
      objCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = False
      Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
      objRecordSet.MoveFirst

      ' --- Loop through the returned records
      Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
            strFName = objRecordSet.Fields("givenName").value
            strLName = objRecordSet.Fields("sn").value
            strEmail = objRecordSet.Fields("mail").value
            strPhone = objRecordSet.Fields("telephonenumber").value
            objRecordSet.MoveNext
      Loop

            'write field values to file
      objFile.WriteLine strUserName & "," & strLName & "," & strFName & "," & strEmail & "," & strPhone


Next
objFile.Close
Set objFile = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objUser = Nothing
Set objGroup = Nothing
Set objShell = Nothing
Wscript.Echo "Done.  Please check your Desktop for the output file"
