"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

assume your csv header is samaccountname,description,office,department,company,manager

$objects = import-csv -Path c:\temp\import.csv

foreach ($Object in $objects)
Set-ADUser $Object.SamAccountname `
-Description $object.description `
-Office $ `
-Department $object.department `
-Company $ `
-Manager (Get-ADUser $object.Manager)
