I recently needed to create 2 attributes for user objects in active directory. I would like to export the list of users within a certain organizational unit (OU) and the two attributes I created to an excel file or CSV, whatever powershell will support for exporting. Can anyone recommend a powershell script that I can work with to accomplish this task. Thank you for your time.

You'll obviously have to replace Attribute1, Attribute2, and the OU path:
Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=SomeDeeperOU,OU=SomeOU,DC=contoso,DC=com" -Property Attribute1, Attribute2 |
	Select-Object -Property SamAccountName, DistinguishedName, Attribute1, Attribute2 |
	Export-Csv -Path C:\Temp\AttributeExport.csv -NoTypeInformation
