Use this command in power shell to create full fledge User account

I created big list by using excel and power shell!
I used this command in excel file.
New-ADUser -Name “Sam” -SamAccountName “Sam” -AccountPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText “Jam123#” -Force) -PasswordNeverExpires $True -Enabled $True
Just type the user name and passord in the right side two columns.
You can create as many user as by only adding user name and password and dragging the code columns of left side.
Then copy rows of code from a2:k2 to a11:k11. And Past into power shell of windows server.
I tried to export users from old server and import those into new server. User were imported but disabled and without password so first i have to create good password and then enabled then. So I choose this method which was pretty cool, Aren’t it?
Comments will be helpful.
