    The tool best suited for your requirement is likely csvde: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732101(WS.10).aspx As my learned colleague above states, it is possible using dsquery/dsadd (or dsmod if they exist) but this is quite cumbersome. Alternatively, you could use a little custom VBScript or Powershell. Better to learn now and futureproof yourself - there are plenty of examples online and especially from Microsoft's own Scripting Guy column.
