Can you Display the Owning Business Unit on the Contact Form?

Is it possible to display the Owning Business Unit on the contact Form? It is shown within the Attributes list on the contacts customization page but is not listed when I try and add a field to the form.

If it can't be done simply is it possible to automatically add it as a value to a new custom field using Javascript on the OnSave property?

Thanks for any help

Yes this could be done by issuing a FetchXML request using Javascript /AJAX.
I recommend flushing this value on close of the form and *not* saving it to an attribute, since by doing so you will introduce data maintenance issues (e.g. in the event that a user moves to a different business unit).
