hello, I have been utilizing this tool for more than 2 weeks now. made my life easier on the school network with student accounts. However, I am wondering if there is any way to add more OU Paths, departments and address or states options to choose from. I am able to add tow OU paths, but none after that. Our organization has over 35 separate dept. groups and adding these each would help make life easier and cut my time in half. I have looked over the coding, but being newbie to scripting, i am getting no-where. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, Vince
:( figured it out, my issue was not that i couldn't add anymore OU paths, one of my paths had an ampersand & killing the process. now figure out how to exclude that as a string only... hmmmm
a path includes the & sign. what can i do to tell the script to not run the & in background? Path of OU: <Path>OU=MyOU,O
U=Boys & Girls Club,OU=Domain, DC=domain,DC=do main</Path> please help anybody? thanks
Take a look at this link. It has an excellent explanation for how to escape special characters http://ss64.com
HI Mate, Did you ever get a fix for this? I am completely stumped. Powershell is great, but can't believe the headache an "&" creates!
Edit, answered my own question. It's actually got to do with XML. If you have an OU with an "&" in it's DN, you'll have to tell XML to use & e.g. ou=customer & community in AD is ou =customer & community in XML, so it can tell the PS side of things that it's actually customer & community. Learn something new everyday. Hope this helps somebody
I just found this script and already know it will save me hours when creating users for our company. I do have some questions though, first are we able modify the user after we import the csv file? We put the prefix of Dr. before our doctors and want to be able to make this change without changing the script. Another question is instead of the drop down for the decription and display name, can it directly pull from the csv file instead? All assistance is extremely appreciated. Jay

Hello, Could you add an option to list AD-groups you want for the user in CSV-file? This way I could create user with CSV and at the same time add him to specific AD-groups. Maybe you could use Powershell command Add-ADGroupMemb

I'm trying to get rid of the 30 "templates" we use to [right click][copy] create new users. The reason... DG memberships causing bouncebacks and other issues. So I'm attempting to script something that will create the users WITH the correct memberships. I was thinking your script is beautiful for this if I could have either the description or the job title pull in a csv file that has all the memberships for THAT job. Since I'm new at this I'm not sure how to make this happen. Would love some help or be guided in the right direction. Thank You!

Hello to all , I have been trying to use this script , I uploaded the csv , in the "Phone" Header i put the user phone, In the Office Header i put the the office name , but when the user is created , the phone number is in the office tab of the user and the office name is in the phone number tab. Did this happen to anyone ? or how can i fix it? Thanks .
There is small mistake in code which you need to rectify: Line No 537 : rename "$OfficePhone" to "$Office" and vice versa in Line No 542
