Default Uploading Bulk AD User Accounts..

I know there is a way to input mass AD user accounts, and im trying to figure that out. I have done some research but no luck on just a simple way of doing so. All I need is to use like a spreadsheet that will let me input all the user information then upload it to the server. Please if anyone could help me out on this. I have ALOT of users to create and it would be nice to know how to do a mass input.

Thanks!

I think with some VBScript, you can pull from a CSV file and update over LDAP. I've never done it though.

Do you already have the accounts exported?

or do you need to export the accounts from one domain to another, (last time I needed to do this, I used the LDIFDE tool), there might be a graphical tool to do this now, but I haven't had to do a bulk import in a fair while!

I have looked into this before. Powershell will work for this but will need time investigating how to script it first.
