Importing additional attributes after CSVDE

Hi,
Inherited an AD setup where previous admin imported pupil information using CSVDE. The only attributes that where in the csv file where the essential, objectClass, sAMAccountName and DN.
I want to be able to populate the other fields, eg displayName, givenName, sn etc. I can do the Profile path using dsquery/dsmod pipes.
I was thinking I could create a new csv file with the relevant structure and attributes but won't that moan that the account already exists?
What's the best way to achieve this?

This code should do what you want.

You need to edit line 1 with the netbios name of your domain.

The script expects an xls file in the same directory as the script named "Source.xls".

The spreadsheet should have a header row, as this script will start reading information from the second row, and will stop when it encounters a row that is completely blank.  If any column of a row has data, the entire row should be populated.  Column A should be the users SAMAccountName (to locate the user in AD), column B should be the DisplayName you want, colulmn C the GivenName, column D the sn.

Enjoy!

Thanks for this, I wouldn't have had a clue.
I'm assuming this needs to be saved as a vbs file and run using cscript before the path to the script.

I'm on site tomorrow so I will let you know.

Cheers
