Dear All,

I have this structure in my AD

DC=lan
            DC=MyDomain
                                      OU=Root
                                                      OU=ou1
                                                              OU=ou11
                                                              OU=ou12
                                                      OU=ou2
                                                              OU=ou21
                                                              OU=ou22
                                                      OU=ou3
                                                              OU=ou31
                                                              OU=ou32

I would like to use the cmdlet Get-ADOrganizationalUnit to display ou1, ou2 and ou3 only (not the sub OU) in a windows list box in order to select them for next action.
I can't see how to achieve this?

Thks
