I need to use the bulk import to import ~60 users. I am trying to do 1 test account first to ensure everything works, however it is failing and I get the error "The name reference is invalid". I am using a CSV file and the fields below are what I am trying to populate:

givenName, sn, cn, sAMAccountName, employeeID,employeeType,adm-CustomAttributeDate1, physicalDeliveryOffice, company, department, manager, title, adm-CustomAttributeText5, ChangePasswordAtLogon

Hello Scott,

Make sure that the manager column contains a distinguished name (DN) of the new user manager. Specifying the Full Name or sAMAccountName will not work.
For details on importing objects from CSV, have a look at the following tutorials:

Is it possible to have Adaxes bulk import the user pictures? We already have the pictures in a directory named with the user's employeeid. Was hoping to import them using that to match. Thanks again for your help
