JSI Tip 9843. How can I use VBScript to return all the users in my domain?

I have scripted a LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) query to demonstrate how to return multiple Active Directory objects in your domain. The script determines your domain name, employs a filter to select users who match a sAMAccountName parameter, defines a list of attributes required, positions to the first record, and outputs a semi-colon (;) delimited file containing the distinguishedName, sAMAccountName, userPrincipalName, givenName, and sn attributes.

NOTE: See tip 10015 » How can I use VBScript to return all the users in an OU (Organizational Unit)?

GetUsers.vbs contains:

On Error Resume Next
Dim objConnection, objCommand, objRootDSE, strDNSDomain
Dim strFilter, strQuery, objRecordSet, objArgs
Set objArgs = Wscript.Arguments
if objArgs.Count = 0 then 
 Wscript.Echo  "sAMAccountName argument required. ""*"" or ""J*"" or etc.."
 WScript.Quit (1)
End If
sam = objArgs(0)
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOOBject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
'Get domain
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
strBase = "<LDAP://" & strDNSDomain & ">"
'Define the filter elements
strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=" & sam & "))"
'List all attributes you will require
strAttributes = "distinguishedName,sAMAccountName,givenName,sn,userPrincipalName"
'compose query
strQuery = strBase & ";" & strFilter & ";" & strAttributes & ";subtree"
objCommand.CommandText = strQuery
objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 99999
objCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 300
objCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = False
Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
    strDN = objRecordSet.Fields("distinguishedName")
    strGN = objRecordSet.Fields("givenName")
    strsn = objRecordSet.Fields("sn")
    strSA = objRecordSet.Fields("sAMAccountName")
    strUN = objRecordSet.Fields("userPrincipalName")
    Wscript.Echo 
" & strDN &
;
& strSA &

& strUN &
;
& strGN &
;
& strsn &
" objRecordSet.MoveNext Loop ' Clean up. objConnection.Close Set objConnection = Nothing Set objCommand = Nothing Set objRootDSE = Nothing Set objRecordSet = Nothing
