Add users to security group from csv

Hi,
I tried the script, it adds the users which are in first line  in the CSV, however when I have users more than one, it gives the following error:

adding users to group "narasimha.s"
 - Cannot find an object with identity: '' under: 'DC=test,DC=local'.

CSV format:
Group                                                                      Samaccount
DL-WGK-US-Houston-Projects-XXXXXX-RW           Test102
                                                                              GG-WGP-US-test-Projects-XXXXXX-RO-TEST
                                                                              Narasimha.S



Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-Csv "C:\Users\a.narasimha.s\Desktop\Project folder creation\Adduserstogroup.txt" |
 ForEach `
 {
   $users = @($_.samAccount -split ",")
   $group = $_.group
   write-output "adding users to group ""$group"""
   #$users
   $users |
    ForEach `
    {
      try
      {
        $user = $_
        Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $group -Members $user
      }
      catch
      { Write-Output "$user - $($error[0].exception.message)" }
    }
 }

Do you want to add multiple users to a single group or multiple groups and multiple users?

Import-module ActiveDirectory 
Import-CSV "C:\Scripts\Users.csv" | % { 

Add-ADGroupMember -Identity TestGroup1 -Member $_.UserName 
}

Input should be from CSV. The mentioned script works fine but it consider only first line in the CSV . It wont consider the samaccount details from the second line

Why are you nesting groups like that and then putting in users, that makes no sense at all
oBdA

So you don't want to repeat the group name in each line of the csv, but continue with the last one when the the next line contains a user name, but no group name?
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-Csv "C:\Users\a.narasimha.s\Desktop\Project folder creation\Adduserstogroup.txt" | ForEach-Object {
	If ($_.Group) {
		$Group = $_.Group
	}
	$Users = @($_.samAccount -split ",")
	Write-Output "Adding users to group '$($Group)'"
	ForEach ($User In Users) {
		Write-Output "  - '$($User)'"
		Try {
			Add-ADGroupMember -Identity $Group -Members $User -ErrorAction Stop
		} Catch {
			Write-Output "'$($User) - $($Error[0].Exception.Message)"
		}
	}
}

Got your point.

 Add the users mentioned in the form to the Global  Group and add the Global group to Domainlocal group.
Users requesting for Modify access should add to Global group and Global group should be added to Domain local group

@obda : Want to add multiple users to security group using csv Input
oBdA

That is obvious; but what you posted as a sample is not a csv; based on your editing looks like you have a csv where the group name is not set in every row, indicating that the last available group name should be used for rows without group name.
In other words, a csv like this (spaces added for clarity):
"Group",     "Samaccount"
"Group1",    "Member1Group1"
"",          "Member2Group1"
"",          "Member3Group1"
"Group2",    "Member1Group2"
"",          "Member2Group2"

If so, the script I posted above should be able to do this.
If not, please attach the actual csv you're using, or post it inside [code][/code] blocks, without format changes (so no removal of delimiters, no adding of spaces etc.).
