Hello I am looking for a way to pull all users from all OU's in active directory and was wondering if anyone had a VBScript that they would be willing to share.  Any help would be appreciated thanks.

The question will be "what should the output look like?".
A simple batch command "net user" will do when executed at a domain controller.

no, I mean, is the layout of the output of any importance?
See, for example
net user >%temp%\users.txt
 will produce a textfile with 3 columns.

I would prefer just one column I only need the username but 3 columns will work if not possible to do 1.

Well, I cannot figure out a script to get one column from net user, so take the command
dsquery user
that produces one column.
