The list above ive exported over from AD.  I saved it as a csv file but all i want is the users, dont want CN or ou.  Is there a excel formula to get of the cn and all the ou and dc.  All i want on the spread sheet is the users names thats it.

Thank you for all your help

You can use this formula for A1:
=SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"CN=",""),"OU=","")

And copy down.

Sorry I misread your data. Please try this one:
=MID(A1,4,FIND(",",A1)-4)
