Point value changed by question poster. I upped the point value, hopefully someone can help. I need to input many users for Novell. I have all the info on a spreadsheet and I want to avoid hand entering all the data.

Straight from a spreadsheet will be tough, but if you manage to create an output to a pre-formatted file it should be feasible.
Using the UIMPORT utility (command line, on a workstation), you can import from a text file.

There are a few URLs where you can find more info on how to do this (with examples), but basically you need a "data file", which is a delimited text file containing the info about the users you want to import, and a "control file", which describes what kind of delimiter you use, which fields the utility can expect, and which defaults you set for the import (should a home directory be created, which context will the user be in, and so on).
So, the URLs:
http://developer.novell.com/research/appnotes/1995/april/02/03.htm
http://www.novell.com/documentation/lg/nw4/docui/index.html#../upgrdenu/data/hdoykhl7.html
(remove any spaces if they show up in the URLs)

The answer will depend upon which version of Novell. In netware 6 for example can use LDAP, which does have easy text file importing. As far as Netware 5.x this import tool mentioned above will work.

Please be cautious when do this as to ensurethe data is formated correctly.
