    • I get get this script to work but I will be updating groups of machines in AD which change location of OU and I dont want to ammend the script each time, I just want to put the ou location in a inputbox.
      I am new at this!!! Any help :-)
    • I haven't tested this out, but I believe it should work.  It's cobbled together from bits and pieces of other peoples code.  Best of luck!
