Adding names to usernames in AD
I am by no means a technical expert on these things but currently students in our active directory are only referred to by user name (stu0XXXX).
We've started using ABTutor which is brilliant but I have to request the kids name every time I use it to identify who is on what machine.
I have full class lists in excel with usernames and they can happily be exported to a csv file. Is there a quick fix to amend the current users with Forename and Surname information?

If the usernames are calculated from the actual names of the students then you could probably write a quick bit of VBScript to import their full names to their user accounts appropriately.
Best place for any VB script stuff is here: Welcome to the Script Center
Otherwise all I can think of is the long data entry method.

Take a look at this. It allows you to see and modify user account details in bulk.
You might have to manually copy/paste the details in but it should be easier than going into each account in AD....

I've used ADModify for something similar in the past. ADModify.NET - Home
