    Dropping a file into users home drive. File has specific user info.

    Hi there,

    I want to get the email login details out to out students over the next few weeks and am wondering what will be the best way of going about it.

    Within an Excel spreadsheet I have all of their usernames and passwords etc and thought that there maybe a way to have something interrogating the spreadsheet and matching say a home drive folder name with the line in the spreadsheet and then extract that line of data, bundle it into a txt or doc file and them saved into the users home directory.

    Is this feasible or would there be a much simpler way?

    Cheers

    Hi,

    You could use a powershell script to use the spreadsheet by extracting the fields and create your files. I assume usernames are the students root folder?
