Comma delimitted, VBS Script needed

I have a VB Script that will gather all accounts inside users.txt and search for "test" string for AD group prefix and output all groups that start with test.  However the output file has carriage returns on each group.  I would like the userid and group on one line seperated by a comma, to help manage using the output file via Excel.  I appreciate the help if someone can tweak the code.


Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strDomain = "DC=Domain,DC=Controller,DC=com"
strUsers = "c:\Users.txt"

Set objOutput = objFSO.CreateTextFile("c:\Output.txt")

aryUsers = Split(objFSO.OpenTextFile(strUsers).ReadAll, vbNewLine)
For Each strUser In aryUsers
  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 ADsPath FROM 'LDAP://" & strDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory='user' " & _
        "AND samAccountName = '" & strUser & "'"
  
  Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
  objRecordSet.MoveFirst
  If Not objRecordSet.EOF Then 
    Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
      strADsPath = objRecordSet.Fields("ADsPath").Value
      Set objUser = GetObject(strADsPath)
      objOutput.WriteLine objUser.Name & " is a member of the following groups:"
      For Each strGroup In objUser.memberOf
     If mid(strGroup,4,4)="test_" Then  
      Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://" & strGroup)
      objOutput.WriteLine objGroup.CN
    End If
 Next


      objOutput.WriteLine
      objRecordSet.MoveNext
    Loop
  Else 
     objOutput.WriteLine strUser & " does not have an AD account!"
  End If

Next

objOutput.Close
Set objOutput = Nothing
Set objGroup = Nothing
Set objUser = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

Can't test at the mo. but try this.... keeps list of groups in the "Groups" variable then outputs it once.

Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strDomain = "DC=Domain,DC=Controller,DC=com"
strUsers = "c:\Users.txt"

Set objOutput = objFSO.CreateTextFile("c:\Output.txt")

aryUsers = Split(objFSO.OpenTextFile(strUsers).ReadAll, vbNewLine)
For Each strUser In aryUsers
  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 ADsPath FROM 'LDAP://" & strDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory='user' " & _
        "AND samAccountName = '" & strUser & "'"
  
  Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
  objRecordSet.MoveFirst
  If Not objRecordSet.EOF Then 
    Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
      strADsPath = objRecordSet.Fields("ADsPath").Value
      Set objUser = GetObject(strADsPath)

'     objOutput.WriteLine objUser.Name & " is a member of the following groups:"
 
      Groups=""      
      For Each strGroup In objUser.memberOf
 
     If mid(strGroup,4,4)="test_" Then  
      Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://" & strGroup)
      Groups=Groups & chr(34) & objGroup.CN & chr(34) & ","
     End If

    objOutput.WriteLine chr(34) & objUser.Name & chr(34) & "," & Groups
 Next


      objOutput.WriteLine
      objRecordSet.MoveNext
    Loop
  Else 
     objOutput.WriteLine strUser & "*none*"
  End If

Next

objOutput.Close
Set objOutput = Nothing
Set objGroup = Nothing
Set objUser = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

You could probably put the code in an Excel macro too if you wish to save making a CSV file then opening excel etc.

Hi, try this out :-

Basically, use "Write" instead of "WriteLine" while you want text on the same line.

Pasted here just in case :-


Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strDomain = "DC=Domain,DC=Controller,DC=com"
strUsers = "c:\Users.txt"

Set objOutput = objFSO.CreateTextFile("c:\Output.txt")

aryUsers = Split(objFSO.OpenTextFile(strUsers).ReadAll, vbNewLine)
For Each strUser In aryUsers
  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 ADsPath FROM 'LDAP://" & strDomain & "' WHERE objectCategory='user' " & _
        "AND samAccountName = '" & strUser & "'"
  
  Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
  objRecordSet.MoveFirst
  If Not objRecordSet.EOF Then 
    Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
      strADsPath = objRecordSet.Fields("ADsPath").Value
      Set objUser = GetObject(strADsPath)
      objOutput.Write objUser.Name
      For Each strGroup In objUser.memberOf
     If mid(strGroup,4,4)="test_" Then  
      Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://" & strGroup)
      objOutput.Write "," & objGroup.CN
    End If
 Next


      objOutput.WriteLine

Steve - it didn't work.

I received the output...
cn=userid for about 30+ lines.




Dove support - I only get the output cn=userid just one line.

Hmm, well this won't help:

If mid(strGroup,4,4)="test_" Then  

If the 4th character onwards for 4 characters is test_ then.... never do anything, it is 5 characters :-)

So that is checking for:

XXXXtest_XXXXX

Is that what you wanted?

If you want it to START test then use:

if lcase(left(strGroup,5)) = "test_" then

and it will check left hand 5 chars in lower case.

Again I haven't tested as not got a domain controller booted at the moment but have added check to show if no groups too.
