$users = Get-MsolUser how do I collect from a CSV into the variable $users ?

From Alan Byrne's Script (but I am trying to get just a few hundred users from a CSV)

Source: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Export-a-Licence-b200ca2a


$licensetype = Get-MsolAccountSku | Where {$_.ConsumedUnits -ge 1} 
 
# Loop through all licence types found in the tenant 
foreach ($license in $licensetype)  
{     
    # Build and write the Header for the CSV file 
    $headerstring = "DisplayName,UserPrincipalName,AccountSku" 
     
    foreach ($row in $($license.ServiceStatus))  
    { 
         
        # Build header string 
        switch -wildcard ($($row.ServicePlan.servicename)) 
        { 
            "EXC*" { $thisLicence = "Exchange Online" } 
            "MCO*" { $thisLicence = "Lync Online" } 
            "RMS*" { $thisLicence = "Azure AD Rights Mgmt" }
            default { $thisLicence = $row.ServicePlan.servicename } 
        } 
         
        $headerstring = ($headerstring + "," + $thisLicence) 
    } 
     
    Out-File -FilePath $LogFile -InputObject $headerstring -Encoding UTF8 -append 
     
    write-host ("Gathering users with the following subscription: " + $license.accountskuid) 
 
    $users = Get-MsolUser -all | where {$_.isLicensed -eq "True"}

    $skuid = $license.accountskuid

	foreach ($user in $users) {
		
		$userLicences = $user.Licenses

        for ($i=0; $i -lt $($userLicences.count); $i++)
        {
            $userSkuId = $userLicences[$i].AccountSkuId
            #write-host "$($user.DisplayName) , $userSkuId"

            if ($userSkuId -eq $skuid)
            {
                write-host ("Processing " + $user.displayname)
                $datastring = ($user.displayname + "," + $user.userprincipalname + "," + $Sku.Item($userLicences[$i].AccountSku.SkuPartNumber))

		        foreach ($row in $($userLicences[$i].servicestatus)) {
			
			        # Build data string
			        $datastring = ($datastring + "," + $($row.provisioningstatus))
			    }
		
		        Out-File -FilePath $LogFile -InputObject $datastring -Encoding UTF8 -append
            }
        }
	}

         
    }              
 
write-host ("Script Completed.  Results available in " + $LogFile)

What for?  The result of the cmdlet is a complex hierarchical object array, and you can't have that structure in a CSV using standard methods.
What is the exact content of the CSV you want to use?  How do build it?

I assume what you really want to do is to have a text file with user names, and use those names against Get-MsolUser instead of the -all.

That is, you would run
$users = Get-MsolUser (Get-Content c:\msolusers.txt) | where {$_.isLicensed -eq "True"}
