in thread Adding a list of contacts to Exchange Address book.

Thanks that code works perfectly, I tested it with the following and it created my contact, "SAMAccountName" isn't a required field for contacts, all they really seem to need is the "dn" and "objectClass" fields.

use strict; use Net::LDAP; use Net::LDAP::Entry; my $ldap_prov = "server"; my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new($ldap_prov) || die; print ("\nUsername for connection: "); my $username = <STDIN>; print ("\nPassword: "); my $password = <STDIN>; chomp $username; chomp $password; my $bind = $ldap->bind($user, password => $password, $version => 3); my $contact = Net::LDAP::Entry->new(); my $name = "Bob Smith"; my $email = 'bobs@website.com'; $contact->dn( "cn=$name,ou=Website External Contacts," ."dc=corp,dc=website,dc=com" ); $contact->add(objectClass => 'contact'); $contact->add(name => $name); $contact->add(displayName => $name); $contact->add(mail => $email); $contact->add(targetAddress => "SMTP:$email"); my $result = $contact->update($ldap); $ldap->unbind;

    sorry i'm not a script person. there might be something that i'm missing there. it looks like that you are still importing one contact at a time, and need to fill in those names and email address in the script one by one. How then can I do the bulk of a thousand at one go, if their names and email addresses are already in an excel file?
