I have a script that imports new users from a csv; creates their username, upn; then creates the users & mailboxes.
I need a way to export the updated information – specifically the displayname, SAM, UPN, and the employeenumber
I've tried:
$newusers |select name,displayname,email |export-csv "C]
but I can't seem to get it right.
Any insight is appreciated.
Here is the script I'm using (many thanks to ArtB0514!)

Import-Csv $newusers |foreach {
$preferredfirstname = $_.preferredfirstname
$lastnamepreferred = $_.lastnamepreferred
$SAM = $preferredfirstname.substring(0,1)+$lastnamepreferred
$UPN = $preferredfirstname +"."+$lastnamepreferred+$DNSROOT
$Displayname = $lastnamepreferred +" "+$preferredfirstname
$Email = $UPN
$testemail = get-recipient -identity $email -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
$user = Get-QADUser -SamAccountName $SAM

if($user -ne $Null) {
$($ already exists -

} Elseif ($testemail -ne $Null) {
$($DISPLAYNAME) Email address already exists

Creating a new user account for $($DISPLAYNAME)"

$NewUser = New-qaduser -name $SAM `
-parentcontainer $OU `
-userprincipalname $UPN `
-samaccountname $SAM `
-displayname $displayname `
-mail $email `
-givenname $_.preferredfirstname`
-sn $_.lastnamepreferred `
-userPassword $pass `
-company $_.Company `
-department $_.department -title $_.businesscardtitle -telephonenumber $_.telephone `
-city $ -postalcode $ -state $_.state `
-streetaddress $_.street -manager $_.manager `
-oa @{ipphone=$_.ipphone;mobile=$;employeeid=$_.employeeid;employeenumber=$_.employeegui} `

start-sleep -s 10

if($_.mailenabled -eq 'true') {
"Creating a mailbox for $($"
$Newuser |foreach-object {enable-mailbox -identity $ -database $userdb } `
}Else {
"User does not require Email

}#end of mailenabled

}#end of create new user

To me this looks like $newusers is the path to a CSV file. Or do you mean to $newuser without the S?

A couple of other thoughts...
Consider using New-Mailbox because it will create the user account and mailbox in a single command and you won't need to waste time sleepling.
You might want to create a new variable [such as $CreatedUsers = @()] at the beginning of your script, then add the new user account to it after it has been created [$CreatedUsers += $NewUser] and export the $CreatedUsers array to the csv file.

I tried using "switch" in the script, but can't get it to work.
This one works the way I want it to, although it's kludgy.
I will try the new variable.
