Td, thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't used Sysinternals AD Explorer before. Closely resembles adsiedit. I'll look for others you suggested because I want to control the start point of the search vs the domain root, and I want to be able to drill into a container, then return the contents in a .txt file. My need was to be able to, say, take the 100 members of a group and put them in some other document. ADUC doesn't export to a file in a convenient manner and when the number is significant, doing so manually isn't practical.
