Powershell Group Management

Need Help Changing over 300 groups "Managedby" field to another user.

These user does not need permission change for the group but only to be added to the Managedby fields of the group

This needs to be done using a csv file.  

The script that I wrote below does not work

$GroupLists = Import-CSV c:\<pathtofile>
Foreach ($Grp in $Grouplists) {
Set-ADgroup -Managedby $Grp.Managedby

Please note my CSV file has two columns  Groups, SamAccountName
Also please take note that the Group column has the DistinguishName listed & not the Group Name or Displayname

Can someone provide me with proper syntax for this issue

Appreciate it

1. create a .csv with the headings group,manager and put the corresponding groups and users to manage underneath each column
2. Import-csv c:\pathto.csv | foreach{Set-Adgroup -Identity $_.group -ManagedBy $_.manager}

3. Save the one line command groupmanager.ps1 and run it


Thanks, worked
