Hi,
Local or Domain?
Local you can use ADSI and Powershell to pase a csv in into user names.
Domain you can use Powershell as well but will use a csv  to mport the csv entries into AD as user objects.
Let us know and we can possible write something up for you.

You need to prepare a user's templates in batch files. Then you can use file text structure to import them into Active Directory. If you need assistance just let me know, I will help you.

I would have to say, based on the responses I don't think the points were evenly distributed here.
Just my opinion.
