do you want a list? as you can use powershell to do this easily

get-aduser -filter *

then use >users.csv to push it out to a file

if you want to get this a little less info then you can filter the output
if you can be more specific with what you want to see i can give you the syntax

or net user /domain

net user /domain >users.txt

I wrote following C# code to enumerate all the employess and it is working fine. Now i want to filter the users by OU name.  Is there a way by which i can filter by OU.

 using (var context = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain, "mydomainname.net"))
            {
                using (var searcher = new PrincipalSearcher(new UserPrincipal(context)))
                {
                    foreach (var result in searcher.FindAll())
                    {
                        DirectoryEntry de = result.GetUnderlyingObject() as DirectoryEntry;
                        Console.WriteLine("First Name: " + de.Properties["givenName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("Last Name : " + de.Properties["sn"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("SAM account name   : " + de.Properties["samAccountName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine("User principal name: " + de.Properties["userPrincipalName"].Value);
                        Console.WriteLine();
                    }
                }
            }
            Console.ReadLine();

yes you should be able to call the filter similar to the powershell filter

$objDomain = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry
$objOU = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry("LDAP://dc=your,dc=domain")

$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher
$objSearcher.SearchRoot = $objOU

You can also use the following LDAP Query

(&(objetecategory=person)(objectclass=user))

You can do that in ADUC or use command line methods like adfind, csvde, powershell, etc.

Thanks
