Hi Steve

Thanks for the quick reply.

Does this mean I should give up in looking for an existing non-technical 
solution meant for non-technical administrators, i.e a button on the web 
interface with a upload CSV file functionality.

I see the perl script "create-users.pl" is the one loading the users and 
I think it is indeed an example of what I need.

the bad news is that the addresses


where xxxxx is my machine do not point to anything.  I can get to 
http://xxxx:8080/sakai-axis/ but not any further.  not having any 
previous work on Sakai web services I'm cant tell what i'm doing wrong
