Changing users' address fields

SearchExchange.com expert David Sengupta shows you the tool you need to change a group of users' address fields in Exchange 2003.

Using Exchange 2003, is there a quick way to change a group of users' address fields, because they show up in the wrong location? I need a way to export the fields per a list of users, and then import the correction after replacing with the correct address.
Yes, this is possible using LDIFDE and some manipulation in Excel. See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 237677: Using LDIFDE to import and export directory objects to Active Directory for instructions on how to use LDIFDE.
