Can you post the code you are using?

The manager attribute needs a Distinguished name, is that what you are using?

I am getting the supervisor name (ex John Doe) and concatinating everything to see if it works

sManager = drUpdateOptions.Item("supervisor_nm").ToString.Trim
'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
 If sSupervisorUserID.Trim.Length > 0 Then
                    Dim sDistinguishedName As String = String.Empty
                    If IsValidADLogin(sSupervisorUserID, "", "", "") Then

                        sDistinguishedName = getSupervisorDN(sSupervisorUserID, asProcessingDate, asDomain)
                    End If
                    Dim newManager As String = "CN=" & sManager & ",OU=Dallas (GREP SOMEWHERE),OU=OU,DC=COMPANY,DC=com"
                    'sNotFoundInitial = SetADProperty(dirEntryResults, "manager", sDistinguishedName) 
                    sNotFoundInitial = SetADProperty(dirEntryResults, "manager", newManager)                 End If

I have the mangers login (example jdoe0123) and I have the display name (example John Doe) can you give me a way to use either of those 2 to write an if statement to get the distinct name from that?

take a look at this link, it is getting a DN for a group but you can change to get it for a user object
