search in AD

Hi Experts,

I have to search inside the AD.
I have to look for a mobile number.
But how can I search in AD ?
5 Solutions
Open Active Directory user and computers, on the tool bar click find, advanced tab, click Field button, then user and select the mobile number.

If you are talking programatically that's a different story.

What you want to search? all users mobile number? or only specfic user?

If it is for specific users they you need to either user Ldap query or you can utilize the powershell script.

Let us know you exact requirement
