Anonymous LDAP bind with CSVDE

Not too long ago I had to work with an LDAP directory that did not support authenticated binds.  I needed to use CSVDE to export some information out of it and then have it imported into a database before it eventually would end up in AD.  The default help (CSVDE.exe /?) does not show any syntax for doing an anonymous bind.  I did quick search on the internet and didn’t find anyway of doing it either.  I did find this post showing how to do it with LDIFDE though.  Well what do you know it works with CSVDE too.  Just add  –a “” * to your command line this will bind anonymously to an LDAP directory. Or you can use –a “” “” and it won’t even prompt you for a password.
