While there are tons of tools at Novell and Coolsolutions I think the one you are looking for is DSReport: NDS Report Generator
and can be downloaded FREE at:
Small 470kb, simple to use and can be exported to Excel, Quatro Pro or Text file.
Good Luck.

Use any LDAP tool, such as ICE, to export your users and any attributes, along with the value of the attribute, to a text file. Make your modifications and use the same tool to import the data back into E-Directory. Once you learn how to do it, it is simple and fast. It is also dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Please make sure you get the syntax correct and make sure that you create some test accounts to work with. I suggest that you go to read the documentation for ICE, LDIF and LDAP.
