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.

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)
