Hi

I have an excel sheet with the following columns. I need to import into AD to populate contact fields etc.The accounts are already created
the fields are:

User logon name  

Description:  (if entry exists, don't overwrite)
Office:  (if entry exists, don't overwrite)
Telephone Number:

Mobile:

City:

Title:
Department:
Company:

Manager
      Name:  if i input a user logon name, will this resolve?


I will run from workstation with Adminpak (w2k3) installed & excel. Domain admin rights.

Any help would be much appreciated, I am hopeless at scripting..

TIA

The only drawback with this that I have found is that you need to lax your password policy in AD under the default domain policy to get this imported.
  • You can then select all users at once - right click on users and restet password.
    • set the passwords to a genraic password that meets the criteria of your environment with prompt user to change at next logon.
      • Switch back your defualt domain password policy to your typical settings.

Thanks for the link. That appears to be for creating users. I want to update their fields. I don't want to reset their passwords

eg  User logon name is the defined profile identifier against which other fields will be populated.
