    Hi @Asif Rehan,

    SharePoint Server allows for the creation of Document Sets. Document Sets can be created manually or programmatically using PowerShell scripts. However, there is no built-in functionality to create Document Sets in bulk using an Excel metadata file. You can look for help from third-party tool vendors. The tools may allow you to create Document Sets in bulk and update the metadata values of sets using an Excel metadata file.
