i want to produce a list of all exchange users and the size of their mailboxes
i want to use username instead of display name
and need them listed from the largest to the smallest
i tried using the following command

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Get-MailboxStatistics | Sort-Object TotalItemSize -Descending | Select-Object UserName,TotalItemSize -First 1500 | Export-CSV mailboxes.csv

this produces the report but the username fields are empty

if i change username to displayname it works but i dont want display name i need username

Unfortunately when you are piping to get-mailboxstatistics username is not a valid a member of that cmdlet. If you pipe a command you can only display the member attributes for the last piped cmdlet. As you have listed above you are not interested in Display Name but that is the only attribute that is available for Name.

Take a look at the following link below as it provides exactly what you are looking for. There is a little more detail than piping cmdlets. You need to create new Expressions. It is very well layed out in the document step-by-step.
