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).
