Adding home directories to each user in script

Ok, looking for suggestions on ways to add the functionality of creating home directories to a script I have for creating users.  Here is the current script i have:


******************************************************************
' UserSpreadsheet .vbs
' Sample VBScript to create User accounts from a spreadsheet
' Author Guy Thomas http://computerperformance.co.uk/
' Version 4.6 - June 2005
' ------------------------------------------------------'
Option Explicit
Dim objRootLDAP, objContainer, objUser, objShell
Dim objExcel, objSpread, intRow
Dim strUser, strOU, strSheet, i
Dim strCN, strSam, strFirst, strLast, strPWD, strDesc, StrDis

' -------------------------------------------------------------'
' Important change OU= and strSheet to reflect your domain
' -------------------------------------------------------------'

strOU = "OU=Students, OU=AEC, OU=03 Schools," ' Note the comma
strSheet = "c:\creating users\aec\aectemp.xml"

' Bind to Active Directory, Users container.
Set objRootLDAP = GetObject("LDAP://rootDSE")
Set objContainer = GetObject("LDAP://" & strOU & _
objRootLDAP.Get("defaultNamingContext"))

' Open the Excel spreadsheet
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set objSpread = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(strSheet)
intRow = 3 'Row 1 often contains headings

' Here is the 'DO...Loop' that cycles through the cells
' Note intRow, x must correspond to the column in strSheet
Do Until objExcel.Cells(intRow,1).Value = ""
   strSam = Trim(objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).Value)
   strCN = Trim(objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).Value)
   strFirst = Trim(objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value)
   strLast = Trim(objExcel.Cells(intRow, 3).Value)
   strPWD = Trim(objExcel.Cells(intRow, 4).Value)
   strDesc = Trim(objExcel.cells(intRow, 5).value)
   strDis = Trim(objExcel.cells(intRow, 6).value)

   ' Build the actual User from data in strSheet.
   Set objUser = objContainer.Create("User", "cn=" & strCN)
   objUser.sAMAccountName = strSam
   objUser.givenName = strFirst
   objUser.sn = strLast
   objUser.Put "DisplayName", strDis
   objUser.SetInfo

   ' Separate section to enable account with its password
   objUser.userAccountControl = 512
   objUser.ChangePassword "", strPWD
   objUser.SetInfo

intRow = intRow + 1
i = i + 1
Loop
objExcel.Quit


WScript.Echo "Finished Creating Users.  " & i & " Users created!"
WScript.Quit

' End of Sample UserSpreadsheet VBScript.

Add home directory path to column G and home drive letter to column H of the XML file

Change
   Dim strCN, strSam, strFirst, strLast, strPWD, strDesc, strDis
to
   Dim strCN, strSam, strFirst, strLast, strPWD, strDesc, strDis, strHomeDrive, strHomeDirectory

Add
   strHomeDirectory = Trim(objExcel.cells(intRow, 7).value)
   strHomeDrive = Trim(objExcel.cells(intRow, 8).value)
After
   strDis = Trim(objExcel.cells(intRow, 6).value)

Add
   objUser.homeDrive, strHomeDrive
   objUser.homeDirectory = strHomeDirectory
Before
   objUser.SetInfo

The final piece is to have the script create the folder and set permissions as desired. You can easily adapt the following script that was written by the same author as your original script.
