I am trying to save the out put of this script to a text file but its displaying to the screen. I tried to modify the echo statements but its not working after i modify this. Can someone help me here is what I have. I am wondering what am I doing wrong.


Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile("c:\output.txt", True)
On Error Resume Next
 
Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
 
dtmCreationDate = "20110909000000.0Z"
 
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
 
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
 
objCommand.CommandText = _
    "SELECT Name, objectCategory, whenCreated FROM 'LDAP://cn=computers,dc=somedomain,dc=local' WHERE "  & _
        "whenCreated>='" & dtmCreationDate & "'"
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
 
objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    Wscript.Echo objRecordSet.Fields("Name").Value
    Wscript.Echo objRecordSet.Fields("objectCategory").Value
    Wscript.Echo objRecordSet.Fields("whenCreated").Value
    objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop

Hi, one way to do it is to run
cscript YourScript.vbs > Output.txt

Regards,

Rob.

The other way using the FSO is to change WScript.Echo statements to objFile.WriteLine
