to be able to use my csv file as an input to this script I should replace the part where it says "$users = "jacobd","talonssss"" to be : Import-Csv -Path "Y:\MissingMembers.csv" | ForEach-Object {<YOUR SCRIPT>}...right? Jacob Durham Yes $users = import-csv c:\path\to\file.csv


You might need to use $user.userid depending on how the CSV looks. Naser Gabaj ASKER I feel I'm almost there but the result is not as I expect, please see attached, is there a way I can direct my search to look into a specific OU name? Should I replace the part "$ADUser = Get-ADUser -Identity $user -Properties primarygroup -ErrorAction Stop" with the "$ADUser = Get-ADUser -Identity $user -Properties OU -SearchBase 'OU=XYZ' -ErrorAction Stop" Please confirm 2018-10-23_15-01-31.jpg Jacob Durham Give me the entirety of the code. You're not piping anything into the identity parameter which means one of the variables is off. Naser Gabaj ASKER$users = import-csv R:\Groups\Members.csv
foreach ($user in$users)
{
try {
$ADUser = Get-ADUser -Identity$user -Properties OU -SearchBase 'OU=<interestedGroup>,DC=<DOMAIN>,DC=com' -ErrorAction Stop
}
catch {
if ($_ -like "*Cannot find an object with identity: '$user'*") {
"User '$user' does not exist." } else { "An error occurred:$_"
}
continue
}
"User '$($ADUser.SamAccountName)' exists and his primary group is $(($aduser.Primarygroup -replace "CN=|,.*") -join ", ")."
}

As Jacob mentioned, you need to use $user.userid. Like this: $ADUser = Get-ADUser $user.userid ...  IF your CSV file's header is actually 'User ID' then you will need to use$user."User ID"
$ADUser = Get-ADUser$user."User ID" ...
