Hello,
I'm looking for a way a vbscript can access the Active Directory, go through all the users one by one, and for each of them copy the values in the "Assistant" attribute (can by any other attribute for example) and copy them over to the "Fax" attribute.

Any such thing?

if u want in powersehll, here it is.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

$copyFromProp = 'Assistant'
$copyToProp = 'Fax'
Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties $copyFromProp,$copyToProp | %{
	$user = $_
	$replaceHashTable = New-Object HashTable 
	$replaceHashTable.Add($copyFromProp, $copyToProp)

here in vb script:
'SearchAD.vbs
On Error Resume Next

sCopyPropFrom = "Assistant"
sCopyPropTo = "Fax"

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")
strTarget = "LDAP://" & strDNSDomain
wscript.Echo "Starting search from " & strTarget

' Connect to Ad Provider
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"

Set objCmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
Set objCmd.ActiveConnection = objConnection 

objCmd.CommandText = "SELECT " & sCopyPropFrom & ", " & sCopyPropTo & " FROM '" & strTarget & "' WHERE objectCategory = 'user'"

Const ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE = 2
objCmd.Properties("Page Size") = 100
objCmd.Properties("Timeout") = 30
objCmd.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE
objCmd.Properties("Cache Results") = False

Set objRecordSet = objCmd.Execute

objRecordSet.MoveFirst
Do Until objRecordSet.EOF
	sCopyPropFromVal = objRecordSet.Fields(sCopyPropFrom)
	sCopyPropToVal = objRecordSet.Fields(sCopyPropTo)
	Set objUser = GetObject ("LDAP://" & sCopyPropFromVal)
	wscript.Echo objUser.Name & " - Assign " & sCopyPropFromVal & " to property " & sCopyPropTo
	objUser.Put sCopyPropTo, sCopyPropFromVal
	objUser.SetInfo
	objRecordSet.MoveNext
Loop
