I have this script that I found and it works.  But I need to have a comma between the name attribute and the managedby attribute.  The result is in csv format but it is all in one cell.  Not sure how to make it work.  Here is the PS cmdlets

$test = 'OU=test,DC=mydomain,DC=int'
$test | ForEach {Get-ADComputer -Filter * -Properties ManagedBy -SearchBase $_ } |
 Select Name, ManagedBy |
 Sort -Property Name |
 Out-File C:\test.csv

Your help is much appreciated.

Use Export-csv instead

You can use Export-Csv to export the details to a csv file..
$test = 'OU=test,DC=mydomain,DC=int'
$test | ForEach {Get-ADComputer -Filter * -Properties ManagedBy -SearchBase $_ } | 
Select Name, ManagedBy |
Sort -Property Name |
Export-Csv C:\test.csv -nti

Open in new window

Note that Export-CSV will enclose all values in double quotes. Since you are talking about "cells", I assume you import the CSV file into Excel - than the double quotes do not matter.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I can't believe that it was that simple.  I guess it's not simple if you really don't know all the functionality.  That worked.  I appreciate all your help.  Thank you Subsun, as you have been instrumental in my Powershell learning.  To be fair, ( and not get in trouble)  I will award the points to Neilsr as he came in first with the working solution.

Thanks again.
