I need to find all active windows xp machines on our network so I can upgrade them to Windows 7, but because we just started our asset database the old machines are not in the list.

I need to be able to use a command to take all the active machines on the network and then export them to a .csv so I can have a list.

Any help would be great!

Here you go, the powershell script you find in the article below will do exactly what you are asking for. I used it and worked great for me.
