help with dsadd user Script - Import large number of users?

What I'm trying to do is setup a dsadd script that will read a csv file & import about 200 new users I need to get setup in the next day or two.

some of the variables would be fn, mi, ln, display, membeof, ect...

I really have no scripting experience (A little Korn on Sun about 4 years ago) & I know this is a fairly basic questions.

But... can someone point me to a sample that I may (gasp) plagiarize for my use or give me the basic example how to read the variables off a csv file?  I'm in a bit of a time crunch here (understatement) & don't really feel like trying to reinvent the wheel if it's already out there somewhere.

I appreciate any help!
Have a good one!

Thanks!

It's very easy. Use CSVDE
no script, just one command :)
Look here: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Logon/CSVDE_LDIFDE.htm
But you really should export first, to have a backup and see how ldap fields are labeld.
