Are you trying to do this from a server 2003 or is this a server 2003 domain? A little more info would be helpful. If you are on a windows 7 pc then you can run this powershell

get-aduser (username) -properties *

and it will return all of their info

Another command:

ldifde -d "CN=user,CN=container,DC=xxx,DC=yyy" -f user.txt

if you want to export the data from the powershell above use this

$username = PutUsernameHere
get-aduser $username -properties * | Out-File C:\$username.txt

Open in new window

it will export the info to a text file with their username as name also
I would suggest Quest ActiveRoles Management Shell for Windows 2003 Domain..

Install Quest ActiveRoles Management Shell on any COMPUTER which is connected to domain. Please refer the link for installation files.

Open ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory console..

Start | All Programs | Quest Software | ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory

Run the following command to list all attributes of UserA
Get-QADUser UserA -all | FL *

Open in new window

Run the following command to export all attributes of UserA to a csv file..
Get-QADUser UserA -all | Export-Csv C:\report.csv -nti

Open in new window

But if you can't use the Quest tool then you need to use CSVDE, LDIFDE or VBscripts
