If I understand correctly you wan to add groups under group tab to respective groups under memberof column..

If yes try this..
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-Csv C:\input.csv | %{
$Group = $_.Group
	$_.memberof -split "," | % {
		Add-ADGroupMember $_ $Group
	}
}

Open in new window


Sample input.csv file..
"Group","memberof"
"testgroup1","testgroup2"
"group1","group2,group3,group4"

Open in new window
