Hi, I'm using VS2012.

I want to use this ExtensionAttributes9 field to store date value for each user object.  I use UserPrincipal class, a collection of these objects are then bind to a gridview control.  Is ExtensionAttributes9 a field in AD user object?  How can I access it and bind to the gridview?

If this field isn't available then what other field can use?

Thank you.

you have to extend the schema to add what you want. For those attributes to be present in your Active Directory schema, you need to have the Exchange schema extensions installed with the Exchange setup /PrepareSchema

That's sounds complicated involving Exchange.  I thought these are just extra fields in AD that we can use.  

I'm thinking what about if I use the "Info" field in user object(Under Telephone tab) but I don't think that field shows up in the in intelisens of UserPrincipal object.  How can I access that field?

Thank you.
