I have this script am working with to extract memebers of a group. The script works but I like to modify it to be more user friendly

This is the script:
import-csv c:\PapersaveGroups.csv | Select -ExpandProperty Groupnames | foreach {Get-QADGroup $_ `
| select name, @{Name="Members";Exp={ $_.Members -join ", "}}} | Export-Csv 'c:\PWGroup CSV Files\getMembersOfgroup.csv'

This is the output:

Name                            Members
TEST GROUP      CN=USer Name,OU=Users,OU=test,OU=test1,OU=test2,DC=domain,DC=net,


I like the output to be like this :

Name of group                Members

Group    1                           displayname
                                             displayname
Group 2                               displayname
                                             

Please help

Try this code and see if it works for you..
import-csv c:\PapersaveGroups.csv | Select -ExpandProperty Groupnames | foreach {Get-QADGroup $_ `
 | select name,@{Name="Members";Exp={ ($_.Members | Get-QADUser | Select -ExpandProperty DisplayName) -join "`n"}}} | Export-Csv 'c:\PWGroup CSV Files\getMembersOfgroup.csv'

Try this:

$groups = import-csv c:\PapersaveGroups.csv | Select -ExpandProperty Groupnames 
foreach {$group in $groups) {
   $obj = new-object psobject
   $record = get-qadgroup
   $obj | add-member noteproperty -name "Name of Group" -$value $record.name
   $x=0
   foreach ($mbr in $record.members) {
     $x++
     $obj | add-member noteproperty -name "Group$x" -value $mbr.displayname
   }
  $records += $obj
}
$records | Export-Csv 'c:\PWGroup CSV Files\getMembersOfgroup.csv'

You probably need to expands the raw size to see the additional members..
