get status of user(enable or disable) in AD with command

I received a request for around 30-40 users to provide information for them if their accounts are disabled or not in AD.
It's very time consuming to go to each account in AD, open account tab, scroll down to see if the checkbox is applied and to take a screenshot.
Is there any other way,with command to get this information for list of users. I am having the list of users in txt file.
And the most important I cannot copy/paste info - I need to provide a screenshot , so it will be useful if the command retrieve info probably like
user - enabled
user2- disabled
user3 -disabled

AD domain is Windows 2003R2

dedri - Personally, I am fond of Powershell so I would suggest you use the below script, modified to your specifications.

Get-Content -Path C:\AccountsListing.txt |
ForEach-Object {
    Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(samaccountname=$_)" |
    Select-Object -Property samaccountname,enabled
}

Open in new window


Since you are a 2003 domain, you'll need to ensure you are setup in a similar fashion as this to enable powershell cmdlets against your 2003 domain.

What you can do, just open AD users and computers snap ins and right click domain name and click on find
In find box select Common queries and select checkbox against "Disabled users"
so that it will give you the list of disabled users
Just export the list.
All users except above are enabled users

Or you can download "Bulk AD Users" tool from Wise soft (Freeware) and search user there from list, it will give you the status of all users, just export them and filter with "Disabled or Enabled
