How can I export a user's list and contact information from Active Directory on a csv file and/ or run a query that help me change the username and email address from a list of users on Active Directory.
Let's say I have 500 users I need to make that change over those 2 fields mentioned above, is there any query that help me to do it automatically by parameters, instead of going one by one ?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

IF EXIST C:\DisableUserRpt.txt DEL /F /Q C:\DisableUserRpt.txt

FOR /F %%c IN ('Type C:\UserIDs.txt') Do (
    Echo Processing: %%c
    DSQuery User -samid %%c | Find /I "CN=" >NUL

Hi!

You can use CSVDE or LDIFDE, both tools have some limitations, I prefer to use LDIFDE:
