I'm currently in need of a script that will read a .csv or excel file, take information from column 4(EmployeeNumber) query active directory for the user who has that employeeNumber and then take the number from column 3 (ID) and enter it into that employee's extensionAttribute14 in Active Directory

I would suggest a script that modifies AD using secure LDAP.  But it will not be easy and mistakes could jack your active directory installation.  Our firm does that sort of work but it would most definitely be fee based.

Ok so working on this but so far this will do it for a single user. This uses the quest powershell cmdlets and using specific variables.

get-qaduser -oa @{employeeID='6474'} | set-qaduser -oa @{extensionAttribute14='2525'}

Still playing around trying to get this into a script form for you.

Ok just tested this on two accounts in my domain and this worked correctly. Using the script below and a csv file similar to the one attached. You can relable the column headings in the CSV file whatever you like as long as you match them in the script.


import-csv "C:\test.csv" | foreach {get-qaduser -oa @{employeeid=$_.employeeid} | set-qaduser -oa @{extensionAttribute14=$_.extension}}

Open in new window

test.csv
