We need to change the company name for all our users in AD. Is there a tool or easy script that I can run to cange just the company name. It is under the Organization tab on the users properties.
We are running Server 2003 Enterprise.

Thanks for your help,
David

A lot of ways (adfind, powershell, vbscript)

For a GUI tool admodify is a great tool   http://admodify.codeplex.com/   nice because you can easily backout changes.

Have you tried highlighting a few users right clicking and seeing if you can change company that way.  You can make bulk changes to a lot of attributes.  Not near my AD to see if that is one of the fields.

Thanks
