    I have a command like this:

    Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(name=*)" -SearchScope Subtree `
    -SearchBase "OU=Global,DC=PM,DC=Local" | %{
    $user = $_
    $user | Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership |
    Select @{N="User";E={$user.sAMAccountName}},@{N="Group";E={$_.Name}}
    }| Select User,Group | Export-Csv "C:\Users\&wisns\Desktop\blalalala.csv" -nti

    It works great for what i want – list all users with all groups they are member of.

    But it saves it to one CSV with is a little bit frustrating to read 🙂

    Is there way to save results for user in individual file? Something like username.csv and inside a list of groups?

    Can you try this?

    $users = Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter '(name=*)' -SearchScope Subtree -SearchBase 'Searchbase' 
    ForEach ($user in $users) 
      $userInfo = $user |
      Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership |
      Select-Object -Property @{
        N = 'User'
        E = {
      }, @{
        N = 'Group'
        E = {
      $username = ($userInfo | Select-Object -Unique -Property user).User
      $userInfo  | Export-Csv -Path "D:\$($username).csv" -NoTypeInformation

    I tried that before but it create file name ".csv" with is broken. When i change its name file.csv it opens up its the same as before -> username next to grupname in one file/sheet

    You just need to move the export into your loop:

    Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "[name=*]" -SearchScope Subtree `
     -SearchBase "OU=Global,DC=PM,DC=Local" | foreach{
        $user = $_
        $user | 
        Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership |
        Select @{N="User";E={$user.sAMAccountName}},@{N="Group";E={$_.Name}} |
        Export-Csv ["C:\Users\&wisns\Desktop\{0}.csv" -f $user.SamAccountName] -nti
