Hi ALL !!

Can someone help me on why the output file does not have it in the order I want ?

I want in the order of:
UsrSAmAccountName,Name,Groups,GrpDescription

And its outputting in order:
UsrSAmAccountName,Groups,UserName,GrpDescription

Add-PSSnapin *Quest* -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
$input= "e:\Projects\test\users.txt"
$Output = "e:\Projects\test\test_Groups.csv"
Get-Content $input | % {
$user = Get-QADUser -sAMAccountName $_
New-Object Psobject -Property @{"UsrSAmAccountName"=$user.SAmAccountName;"UserName"=$user.Name;"Groups"="";"GrpDescription"=""}

ForEach ($Group in $user.memberof) {
            $Grp= Get-QADGroup $group
            New-Object Psobject -Property @{"UsrSAmAccountName"=$user.SAmAccountName;"UserName"="";"Groups"=$Grp.Name;"GrpDescription"=$Grp.Description}
    }
} | Export-CSV -Path $Output -NoTypeInformation

You need to add a Select-Object command in front of the Export-CSV and manually specify the order of columns you want.
 } | Select UsrSAmAccountName,Name,Groups,GrpDescription | Export-CSV -Path $Output -NoTypeInformation 

Open in new window


I can't say exactly why it chooses a particular order.  At one time I thought it was alphabetical according to the name of the property, but I don't believe that is right.  Haven't really investigated...
