#1 ·  Posted (edited)

here is the situation i am installing a new server (server2003) B)

and i need to create user accounts quickly (i can not export setings from old server)

need to set

-first name

-lastname

-password

-mailbox

-groupmembership

-profiel path

-home folder

what i was thinking was to creat a script that could read the data from an exel file and then create the users based on this data

would like to trydoing this with out useing "send key " because i think that would slow it down and cause errors

i am sure this script would be use full to many people not just me

why don't you wanna use send("...")?

you just have to winwaitactive for the window to be active or do a little sleep

send('first{tab}last{tab}pass{tab}mail{tab}group{tab}profile{tab}home{enter}')

if this is the way it is entered, there should be no problem using send("...") just took me 600ms for the things to enter

the excel-thing is up to you because i never use it, so i can't help you there

To read from the excel spredsheet you can used ExcelCOM UDF from Randallc

May be you can wrapp AutoIt to used the command line that comes with W2K3 Dsadd.exe take a look to this webpage

I hope this will get you started...
