I want to be able to change all users in a certain OU to have the same "Department" (on the Organization TAB) to be the same.

I have too many OU's and then users in each to do it by hand. Also once this is in place I will be using Recpient Policies (email and mailbox manager) to use these department names so I dont want any user error.

On win2k3 AD.

Please can someone let me know if they have a vbs script to do this as my knowledge of writing them is pants!!


Thanks
Mark
