Powershell : Filter

Hello experts,

I need to list accounts which matches the following filter:

Enabled = True and
If the employeetype attribute  contains any values with A* (A1, A2, A3...), B* (B1, B2, B3...), C* (C1, C2, C3....), D* (D1,D2,D3,....)

EmployeeType - A*, B*, C*, D*

$UserList = Get-AdUser -Filter ( ) and -Enabled

Please assist.

Thank you.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

$UserList = Get-ADUser -Filter {(Enabled -eq $true) -and ((employeeType -like 'A*') -or (employeeType -like 'B*') -or (employeeType -like 'C*') -or (employeeType -like 'D*')} -Property employeeType

If I want to include 1 more condition -and ( proxyaddresses=*), could you please assist with the filter.

Thanks.
oBdACommented:
You just add another condition:
$UserList = Get-ADUser -Filter {(Enabled -eq $true) -and (proxyAddresses -like '*') -and ((employeeType -like 'A*') -or (employeeType -like 'B*') -or (employeeType -like 'C*') -or (employeeType -like 'D*')} -Property employeeType

It doesn't like the following in the filter: ( the four -OR statements,  )

((employeeType -like 'A*') -or (employeeType -like 'B*') -or (employeeType -like 'C*') -or (employeeType -like 'D*'))}

the following works. (only 2 -OR statements)

((employeeType -like 'A*') -or (employeeType -like 'B*')  ))}

Just a missing closing bracket:
$UserList = Get-ADUser -Filter {(Enabled -eq $true) -and (proxyAddresses -like '*') -and ((employeeType -like 'A*') -or (employeeType -like 'B*') -or (employeeType -like 'C*') -or (employeeType -like 'D*'))} -Property employeeType

I tried with the closing bracket. It doesn’t like 4 -or statements. It works with 2. When I have 4 or statements, it says get-aduser parameter invalid.

-properties samaccountname, employeetype,userprincipalname,mail | select samaccountname, userprincipalname, employeetype, mail

foreach($user in $userlist) {

write-host $user.samaccountname

}

I get get-aduser parameter invalid with 4 -OR statements (works with 2 -OR statements)

Can't reproduce. Copied and pasted that command, no errors.
