Hello,

I have to create AD users from a CSV and would like to know how to remove spaces of a composed last name, for example if an employee's full name is Neymar, Da Silva, then username will be dasilvan

Thanks for your help,

$firstname=" abdul "
$lastname="rahman mohammed"

$firstname=$firstname -replace "\s",""

$lastname=$lastname -replace "\s",""


$username = $lastname+($firstname[0])

But, how do i validate it...?
if lastname does not have space
$lastname=$lastname -replace "\s",""  would not matter ?

Yes it doesn't matter. If there is no space then you will get the same input string as a result..

Before:
$sam = $_."Last Name".ToLower() + $_."First Name".substring(0,1).ToLower()
After:
$LastName = $_."Last Name" -replace "\s"
$sam = $LastName.ToLower() + $_."First Name".substring(0,1).ToLower()
