AD Lookup via EmployeeID > Export user info to csv

I have a CSV/TXT file with the heading of EmployeeID

How can I export a list to csv from AD that contains only the users listed in that EmployeeID file via powershell?


I want the command to find the EmployeeID "3374" (for example) and export the userprincipalname, displayname, samaccount etc...

Import into powershell, then cycle through with a foreach.

$EmployeeIDs = import-csv -path 'path to csv'\employeeid.csv
$Users = @()
foreach ($EmployeeID in $EmployeeIDs) {
    $user = get-aduser -filter 'Employeeid -eq "$($employeeid)"' |select SamaccountName, UserPrincipleName, Name
    $users += $user
$users |export-csv -path 'path to export'\userdetails.csv -notypeinformation

Open in new window

In addition to using a powershell command. I would highly recommend using Active Directory Explorer, it is simple to use and will allow you to create your own search criterias with ease.

Script will do as requested.
