I think i lost the script that allows me to import/add the employeNumber from a CSV into AD Users
The csv has the following headers

Open in new window

Just in case the following:
$AD = Get-ADUser -SearchBase "OU=COMPANY,DC=,DOMAIN=COM" -filter * -Properties sAMAccountName,sn,givenName,title,employeeNumber | Where { $_.DistinguishedName -notmatch "OU=VIP" -and $_.DistinguishedName -notmatch "OU=DA"} | Select-Object  sAMAccountName,sn,givenName,title,employeeNumber

I think, I got it.
$Ceridian = Import-Csv "c:\scripts\ceridian\CeridianUsersClockNumberPopulate.csv"
Foreach ($Ceridian_User in $Ceridian){
	write-host "From Ceridian"
	write-host $Ceridian_User."SamAccountName" $Ceridian_User."Surname" $Ceridian_User."GivenName" $Ceridian_User."EmployeeNumber"
	Get-ADUser $Ceridian_User.sAMAccountName  | Set-ADUser -employeeNumber $Ceridian_User."EmployeeNumber" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -ErrorVariable Err1
	write-host "EmployeeNumber SET Sleeping 5 seconds"
	write-host ""
	start-sleep 5

Following code also will do...
Import-Csv "c:\scripts\ceridian\CeridianUsersClockNumberPopulate.csv" | %{
Set-ADUser $_.sAMAccountName -employeeNumber $_.EmployeeNumber -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -ErrorVariable Err1
