If you wish to import all of the computers in a domain or workgroup displayed under the Windows Network into a text file there isn’t always an obvious way of doing it. However with a simple cmd prompt command you can get a listing of the machines registered in the domain. In my example I am going to output the computer names into a file called hostnames.txt
Obtain the listing
Open a command prompt Start->Run->cmd Type
net view > hostnames.txt
or if you wish to specify a particular domain
net view /domain:mydomain > hostnames.txt
The output of the domain will then be placed in file called hostnames.txt. You can manipulate this file in Notepad, Excel or any other program capable of editing ascii files.
