Autogenerate/Batch create users from a table?

Vote:
 

This sounds silly, and it's not something that will be a permanent thing. I just need to do this as a one-time thing for a specific purpose. Explanation: We are hosting a program/campaign where we would like our partners to sign up for the program by filling in a form in a secured area. In order to make this process easier for this one-time program, we have a list of partners with email address and site number. Using the email address as their username, and autogenerating a password, how would I go about looping through this list of users in a table, or any other format, and create their accounts. Do I have to use the .NET createuserwizard control? We are currently using the createuserwizard control in our Register pagetype.

Or do I have to manually create users using MembershipUser CreateUser() method? But would I also have to create a user in EPiServerProfile? Or does the EPiServerProfile get set up automatically when using CreateUser()?

Any ideas on how the best way to go about doing this?

Just use CreateUser. But no need to work with EPiServerProfile. EPiServerProfile is a direct map of the users, so its database representation will be created the first time you save a value in it.
