AD Cleanup (from list)

I'd like to do some cleanup on AD of users that are no longer employed.  If I have a text file of currently employees, what script would be able to take those that are NOT on that list and then disable and move their account.

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do that in powershell by creting an array of the users in the text file then searching AD for all users. Comare each user to the text file.

But I would do it a different way. I would search for users that have not logged in for a certain time and disable them. then delete. Take a look at a post I did on the scripting guys blog last week.

Another way is to use "oldcmp" with the -users switch.
