Change attributes in AD

Hello Everyone,

I recently joined EE and I was hoping I to find some assistance to a personal project I am having.

Allow me to sum it up.

Have a server 2003 with 8 test users created in AD, that I would very much like to change attributes on. Listed some of them here, "DisplayName, sn, givenName, sAMAccountname, phonenumber" and a few more. But these are the most important to me.

So what would be the easiest way to modify these attributes in AD?
Searched a little on technet and read of a program called ADModify.net but I haven't looked into it much. Could I use ldifde combined with excel perhaps? (modify the attributes that way).

I know I could change the individual attributes since I only have 8 users but why settle with the most straightfoward solution. Even though I can type about 90 words a minute I would really go for the easiest solution possible (my nails will be saved the typing nightmare as well).

Hope to get in contact with one of the experts in here.

Thank you so much

Sarah
