Remove Users from DL from CSV

This is not working

Can you tell why?

$Groupname="Group Name"
$names=import-csv "path"
foreach($name in $names)
{ Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity $Groupname -Member $_.name}

You are incorrectly using $_.name.  I don't know what your .csv file looks like or what the column headers are, but here is my best guess based on the info you provided:

$Groupname = "Group Name"
$names = Import-Csv "path"

foreach ($name in $names) {
  Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity $Groupname -Member $name.name
}

Open in new window

If this is correct then the .csv file has one column entitled 'Name'.
