    I am trying to do a bulk import of user accounts using the CSVDE tool for active directory. I have a .csv file and am doing this:

    csvde -i -f ExampleUsers.xls and receive the following error output:

    Connecting to "(null)"
    Logging in as current user using SSPI
    Importing directory from file "ExampleUsers.xls"
    Invalid file format. DN Attribute not defined
    0 entries modified successfully.
    An error has occurred in the program

    This is the file i am using:

    Container/OU First Name Last Name Common Name DN Logon Name Groups

    I figured it out. I failed to create the OU in the root directory of the domain.
