    I want to write this command-line (one-liner) to get members of an ad-Group and place them i a textfile. I have so far written the following:

    Get-ADGroupMember xyzGroup | select samaccountname | out-file c:\temp\group.txt

    But how do i trim the samaccountname. In the final text file there are spaces after each name on each line.

    I can easily do this in a script:

    $Members = Get-ADGroupMember xyzGroup
    Foreach ($obj in $Members)
    $navn = $obj.samaccountname.Trim()
    $navn | out-file "c:\temp\xyzGroup_members.txt" -Append

    But how do i do the same thing in the one-liner?

    somthing like this I think

    # to store in Variable
    $Members = Get-ADGroupMember xyzGroup -Properties Samaccountname | %{$_.Samaccountname.Trim()} 
    # to send straight to file
    Get-ADGroupMember xyzGroup -Properties Samaccountname | %{$_.Samaccountname.Trim()} | out-file "c:\temp\xyzGroup_members.txt" -Append

    You can also try

    (Get-ADGroupMember -Identity YourGroupName).SamAccountName | out-file c:\test\xyzGroup_members.txt -Append
