Hi BKBIGB,

Have you considered using PowerShell for this? If you use that along with the Quest CmdLets we can make this pretty easy:

The only catch is that you'd need to save your file as a CSV, then give us some idea of the column names.

Sorry, I forgot to add, whether you go for PowerShell or not we need a sample of the input file. Then a script can be written and documented to meet your needs here.

BKBIGB,

Please read the article I posted, it has an XLS sheet attached which you can use to populate information, ...then you would use the resulting command lines to bulk update.
