Pull information from AD into InfoPath Form using Web Service

Posted on 2009-12-29

I am currently using the GetUserProfileByName web service to pull AD information into an InfoPath form. This is wonderful, but I also need to pull information for other users as well, not just the logged on user. So if I type Joe Smith in a field, I would like his work phone number and email address to appear in two other separate fields.

I have tried to make this happen, but have been unable to figure out the exact formula. Can anyone point me to a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this (providing, of course, that this is possible)?

    I have used's web service for this. It allows you to query everything in AD.

    I do not believe the web services in SharePoint allow you to get that granular.

    Thanks Clay. So the only way to do this is a third party tool? I am familiar with Qdabra, but my current company will not adopt any third party tools unless necessary. Thanks.
