Hi nathantrevor

Try this

$Users = Import-CSV <FileName>
foreach ($User in $Users) {Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $User.SamAccountName | Select @{Label="User";Expression={$User.Samaccountname}},@{Label="Group";Expression={$_.name}}} | Export-CSV <OutFile> - NoTypeInformation

Regards

Guy

Only problem I see with the above is that you can't pipe from the foreach statement (but you can with the ForEach-Object cmdlet).
Assuming there's no header in the file, here's what I'd do.
Get-Content file.txt | ForEach `
{
   $user = $_
   Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $user | Select @{n="User";e={$user}},@{n="Group";e={$_.name}}
} | Export-CSV memberships.csv -notype

Open in new window

Ah, yes footech, I see what you mean. I assumed he was using a CSV file, your way is better with a txt file.

If there is a header, we could use Import-CSV.  Would just need to adjust lines 1 and 3.
