Hi There,

Are you talking about "Notes:" box under "Telephones" TAB in Active Directory. If yes then I can help you. I was just testing a script about it. Please confirm this and I'll send you a script.

Thanks,

ADModify.NET will do that job for you. It's very simple and easy to use for changes to multiple Active Directory objects.

Download it from http://www.codeplex.com/admodify. Once you extract it, be sure to run it from your C:\ drive and not a network share - I've had problems running it from a network in the past. Then, it's just as simple as choosing the domain, the OU you want to select the users for, highlight all the users, and then when you press Next you will be given a similar view to the Active Directory Properties screen. Telephones tab -> Notes box, check the checkbox and enter a space or something in the box, then run the process.

It's a nice tool and much easier than writing a script to do it!
