      Hi there!

      Complete newbie here – trying to figure out how to accomplish the following:

      • Use an existing .csv list of all the user groups in AD I want to pull (in one column)
      • Use grab each user group from the column
      • Find that user group in AD
      • Pull the member names
      • Put those member names into its own column in a new .csv
      • Rinse and repeat until all of those user groups have been found
      • Export the .csv

      For reference the code I’d been using before was the following:

      $Groups = Get-Content -Path 'c:\Users\arielle.admin\Desktop\USERGROUPS.csv'
      foreach ($Group in $Groups)
      Get-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group | Export-Csv -Path "c:\Users\arielle.admin\Desktop\$group.csv"

      This was able to export each group into its own .csv, which was helpful, except it’d be so nice to be able to open up a single document and see all of my member names in its own column, and I couldn’t specify that I only needed the “name” column.

      Any advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much in advance.

      Assuming your input CSV file has a header “Name” for the name of your groups you could use something like this:

      $GroupList = Get-Content -Path 'c:\Users\arielle.admin\Desktop\USERGROUPS.csv'
      $Result = foreach ($Group in $GroupList) {
          $GroupMemberList = Get-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group.Name
              GroupName         = $Group.Name
              MemberSamAccounts = $GroupMemberList.sAMAccountName -join ','
              MemberName        = $GroupMemberList.Name -join ','
      $Result | 
          Export-Csv -Path "c:\Users\arielle.admin\Desktop\GroupsWithMembers.csv" -NoTypeInformation
