powershell add multiple users to multiple groups

Good morning I have a huge issue. I am trying to add multiple users to multiple groups with an input file. I have searched for this on the net and mostly I see where you have to indicate each group and then you can go through your input file. I would like to know how can this be done with multiple groups and users in an input file. For example below.


DLNAME    member
dldistro1    usersomeone
dldistr01    usersomeone2
dldistr02    something
dldistro02 somethingagain
dldistro03  jane.doe
dldistro04  john.doe

I was using this as my code

import-csv c:\temp\dlmembers.csv | foreach {add-distributiongroupmember -identity "groupnane" -member $_.Member }

You code looks like it should work what happens when you run it. Only change I made was to change the identity to use the CSV file heading.

import-csv c:\temp\dlmembers.csv | foreach {add-distributiongroupmember -identity $_.DLNAME -member $_.Member }
