Powershell question

hello, need assistance with the last part of this script.
basically, trying to send the results of this script to a csv:

get-qaduser -searchroot "OU=accounts,DC=domain,DC=com" -ldapfilter '(sAMAccountName)' | Format-List name,description

would like to | these results to a .csv.
i've tried adding this at the end:  | export-csv results.csv

but doesnt work.

thanks in advance,

S.

As noted by Brandon in this post:

you should use the select instead of format cmdlet before piping to the export-csv cmdlet.  You might want to do some dry runs on the select versus the format cmdlets with gm to see what kind of differences there are in the underlying objects.

To answer your question, try this:

get-qaduser -searchroot "OU=accounts,DC=domain,DC=com" -ldapfilter '(sAMAccountName)' | Select name,description | export-csv results.csv
