To export all Active Directory disabled user

Select a top level container (not RootDSE) from the left hand explorer window and select export->Excel Export from the right hand context menu and follow the following steps:

1. Enter the name of the Excel file
2. In the filter text box remove (objectclass=*) and paste the following:
(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))
3. Select the attributes to return or leave it to default.


Click Finish.

-------------------------

To Search for all disabled user

Right Click RootDSE (Top left in the explorer window) and Select Search. In the dialog click the Text Filter tab and paste the following

(&(objectCategory=Person)(objectClass=User)(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))

As the error says there is some data which the export process unable to convert to excel format.
Try exporting in the csv format or limit the number of attributes to export.

To limit the number of attributes
1. Select the browse button on the right hand side of 'Returning Attributes' text box
2. Select a few attributes like distinguishedName,cn,description,mail,creationTime,co,company,department,displayName,homeDirectory,homeDrive

Click Finish.
