Bulk change of group membership

By mikealger ·
I have about 500 users on an NT4 network.
Every user has a login name that starts with a number and then has 2 letters follwed by 2 numbers. e.g. 88ma11
All users starting with the same 2 numbers for example the 88 are members of a a group called year7. All users starting with 87 are members of a group called year 8 etc etc.

At the end of the academic year all the users starting with 88 need to move to group year 8 and all users starting with 87 need to move to group year 9 etc. What is the easiest way to move groups on mass please.

Thank you for any help.
Please email to mikealger@hotmail.com

Open USER MANAGER. Select the first username that starts with 88, while holding down the shift key select the last username that starts with 88. You should have all the 88 acounts selected now. From the USER pull-down menu select PROPERTIES. From here you can now modify properties of all the selelected accounts, including group membership.
