I need a script that will read a list of user accounts in a txt file and it will export all of the users information from the AD account (general tab) into a file per line for each account.  Prefer a csv file.

Get-aduser looks fit for active directory users.

Filter * says all users

Here's a simple example of doing it with a BAT script that reads the users from the test file one at a time, queries AD using the powerful (and free) ADFIND utility (link below), and outputs whatever fields you desire to a single CSV file.

http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/

@echo off

set UserList=users.txt
set OutFile=adinfo.csv

(
  for /f "usebackq" %%A in ("%UserList%") do (
    adfind -csv -f "(sAMAccountName=%%A)" cn sn name givenname displayname mail telephoneNumber title departmentcode sAMAccountName
  )
) > "%OutFile%"

You could also do something like ..

gc users.txt | Get-ADUser -Properties * | select GivenName,Initials,Surname,DisplayName,Description,Office,telephoneNumber,mail,HomePage | export-csv data.csv -nti

Hi,

Please use the below powershell script

You need to provide the input as users.csv

Header should be User example below (samid )

User
ravia
premk
shyamk


import-module activedirectory
import-csv c:\temp\users.csv | % { Get-ADUser $_.user -properties * | export-csv c:\filename.csv -notype }
