I understand that you need list all user enabled and disabled of Active Directory.

That´s with it's script in Visual Basic Script:

‘*-*  Script Name: ListActiveUserAccounts.vbs
‘*-*  Description: This script lists all active and disabled accounts in a
‘*-*  in a specified active directory domain. I also save the list in a CSV file.

Dim fso
Dim hFile
Dim strContainer, sStatus
Dim objConnection, objCommand, objRecordSet

‘Create a CSV text file for saving the results
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set hFile = fso.CreateTextFile("Domain Name – Active Accounts.csv", True)
hFile.WriteLine "A/C Status" & chr(9) & " User Name" & chr(9) & "Account Name" & _

‘ Set the query settings
