I need a PowerShell to query active directory, and return a list of enabled users with expired passwords or passwords that are about to expire. (In less than 1 month)

See if this entry in my blog helps.  You should be able to pull the cmdlets out of the script you need.

zulazen - What you have looks like it will get me close to what I need. The only problem is I need the list in a CSV, not emailed to the users.
I would like the user's name and when their password will expire.

becraig - Your solution also gets me close to what I need, but I'm having trouble getting it out to a file correctly. I can't use it if it only displays the users to the screen.

Hmm here is an update (really rusty took too long off)

$dated = (Get-DAte).AddDays(-30)
$fulllist = @()
Get-ADUser -filter { Enabled -eq $True -and PasswordNeverExpires -eq $False} -Properties DisplayName, passwordlastset | select DisplayName, passwordlastset | %  { 
if ($_.passwordlastset -lE $dated) 
    {$uid = $_.DisplayName; $pwdval = $_.passwordlastset
	$pwditem = New-Object PSObject
	$pwditem | Add-Member -membertype NoteProperty -Name USER -Value $uid
	$pwditem | Add-Member -membertype NoteProperty -Name EXPIRY -Value $pwdval
	$fulllist += $pwditem 
    } 
}
$fulllist | export-csv c:\filename.csv -nti
