I need to create 300 users in AD.  A friend of mine told me about an Excel spreadsheet that can be created to generate a text file that can be copied and pasted in CMD on DC to create these users.  How can I create or obtain this, or is there an easier way to do this?

There are a lot of ways, CSVDE is a fairly straight forward way

powershell, adfind, dstools, scripting are other ways too.

Thanks
