    You could use the following script to modify AD users' attributes in bulk with the same value :

    Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties * | %{Set-ADUser -Identity $_ -add @{employeenumber="1"}}

    In addition, you could use a PowerShell script to export all employID and employNumber to a csv.

    You could update the csv file (perhaps with Excel), then use it to update the users in bulk. The update script would be very similar, but use the Import-Csv cmdlet piped to the Set-ADUser cmdlet.
