Does this have to be vbscript?  There are other ways such as powershell, adfind, that can make this easier than vbscript.

Even free GUI tools like adinfo   http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/ADReportingTool/Info.html

I don't have a vbscript handy but can help with other methods if you are interested.

Thanks

Mike

Hi mkline,

I am interested in Powershell or free GUI tools. The condition is that a single query/execution must output all requested data into one CSV file. Thank you for responding so promptly.

Kind regards,
Walt

Use the following  Powershell command below to accomplish this...

Import-module activedirectory
Get-Aduser -Filter * -Properties * | Select DisplayName, sAMAccountName, 
DistinguishedName, LastLogonDate, whenCreated | Export-csv "c:\exportedUsers.csv"

Open in new window

Copy the code in notepad and save the extension to .PS1
Will.
