Converting .diasplayName to .cn User object attributes

I routinely have to populate Active Directory Email distribution lists from lists of employee full names. These list usually contain the “.displayName” of the user. A quick way to resolve this is to convert the “.displayName” of the user into the users common name or “.cn” attribute and cut/paste them into the distribution lists “Members” box. I put the list of users display names into a C:\Scripts\Users.txt file and the script will produce a list of .cn attribute in the C:\Scripts\ConvertedUsers.txt file.
