Help getting an expanded list of users in a group with Powershell

Hello Powershell Experts,

I would like to see a list of all users that are in our various sales groups.  This part is easy enough.  I used the following Powershell code to generate this list.

$SalesGroups = Get-ADGroup –filter  ‘name –eq “Sales*”’
Foreach ($SalesGroup in $SalesGroups) {
      Get-ADGroupMember  -identity $SalesGroup  | Select name, objectclass
}

This produces a list of group members and lets me know whether each group member is an actual user or a group.  

Name                              Objectclass
BobS                              user
LindaQ                              user
PhxTeam                        group
PeteH                              user

Now I want to go through this list and if a group member’s object class equals user, I want to add their name to a variable or array.  If the group member’s object class equals group, I want to get a list of users in that group and add them to the variable or array.  I’m hoping someone can help me with this part.

Thanks,
Nick

Are you trying to get the recursive group membership? If yes you can try..
$SalesGroups = Get-ADGroup –filter  ‘name –eq “Sales*”’
Foreach ($SalesGroup in $SalesGroups) {
  Get-ADGroupMember -identity $SalesGroup -Recursive  | Select @{N="Group";E={$SalesGroup.Name}},name,objectclass
}
