OK, this is now doing my head in, I have added a new attribute to the schema (DOB) and want this to be displayed on the general tab in active directory, users and computers. I have done this in the past, but I cannot for the life of me remember how to do it.

Please, please help, this is likely to send me even more crazy…..

Cheers in advance.

Check out these two links - I think one of them (if not both) will answer your question.

Sorry, misunderstood your question.

Perhaps this will help:

You'll need a subscription to Windows IT Pro (formerly Windows 2000 & .Net, formerly Windows NT Magazine) to access this, but it sounds even more like what you're asking for (Besides - it's a GREAT magazine, you should get a subscription!)
