I know how to set the AccountExpirationDate, but I do not know how to delete it? (I tried to set the Date to nothing, but that does not work.)

Dim Fieldname As String = "AccountExpirationDate"
        Dim dt As Date = _getDate(fieldname)
        Dim type As Type = mCurUsr.NativeObject.GetType
        If value.Ticks = 0 Then
            If Not dt.Ticks = 0 Then
                type.InvokeMember(Fieldname, BindingFlags.SetProperty, Nothing, mCurUsr.NativeObject, New Object() {value})
                mF &= ", " & Fieldname
            End If
            If Not dt.Ticks = 0 Then dt.AddDays(-1)
            If Not value.Date = dt.Date Then
                type.InvokeMember(Fieldname, BindingFlags.SetProperty, Nothing, mCurUsr.NativeObject, New Object() {value})
                mF &= ", " & Fieldname
            End If
        End If
