Get OU for user from Active Directory properties

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have code that get AD properties for a user.
For example
rowUser.Phone = GetADProperty(resEnt, "telephoneNumber")
rowUser.Department = GetADProperty(resEnt, "Department")

  Private Function GetADProperty(ByVal resSearch As SearchResult, ByVal stPropName As String) As String

      Dim stProperty As String = ""

      If resSearch.Properties.Contains(stPropName) Then
         stProperty = resSearch.Properties(stPropName).Item(0)
      End If

      GetADProperty = stProperty

   End Function

Open in new window

But I can't figure out what the code for the OU is. So instead of "telephoneNumber" above, replace it with whatever the code for OU is.
Anyway know what it should be?
