script to read a txt file of SAMID and display full user names.

Last Modified: 2015-04-02

I need a command to read a txt file which contains a list of SAMID and out the full user names into another txt file.  

I have tried the following but it only displays the full user name of the last SAMID:

for /f %%i in (c:\samid.txt) do dsquery user -samid %%i |dsget user -fn -ln > c:\names.txt

Can someone advise what is missing?
