I have been using a program for auto signatures locally that pulled information from the Description field and the PO Box field in my on premise AD and it worked great.

Now that we are going cloud based and the auto sig software pulls from Azure, some of my data is encapsulated in [" "] when it goes into the signature. I have found that storing the data in extensionAttribute 1 and extensionAttribute 2 works fine for Description and PO Box respectively but I have no idea how to copy the existing data from one to the other and I have hundreds of users. I have found some scripts on Google but I want to make sure I dont screw up the data in my AD.
