You should make the change in your on-premises AD, it will sync to Office 365.

I need to correct my work number in outlook my mobile number is ok. IN AD I cant find work number attribute column

Pramod,
1.  Let's find out which property is holding the wong number
2. Open powershell on your DC (right-click Run as administrator)

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-ADuser "userssamaccountname"  -properties *  | Select *phone*,Office*



Once you find out which property has to be changed reset it.   Let's say it's the OfficePhone that you realized has the wrong number

Set-ADuser "Userssamaccountname" -OfficePhone '555-123-4567'


Once you change the number give it time to sync with o365

when I ran this command I don't see the incorrect work number there I see office number and mobile numbers

when u double click user name in outlook where is the work number being pulled from?
FOXActive Directory/Exchange EngineerCommented:
This info is being pulled from AD.  Every company may set their numbers up differently.  ON the user in question use the powershell commands I gave you to see the phone numbers.  If you prefer the gui , open the properties of the user, if you don't see it in the Office number in the General tab, go to the Organization tab and check the numbers in there.

when I go to outlook, click on new , type user name  in properties I see work number : xxx.xxx.xxxx which I don't see anywhere in AD that number
pramod1Author Commented:
when I run this command :Get-ADuser "userssamaccountname"  -properties *  | Select *phone*,Office*

I see 4 numbers pulled up but not the number which is shown in user's outlook properties as work number
FOXActive Directory/Exchange EngineerCommented:
Fair enough  do this command

Get-ADuser "userssamaccountname"  -properties *  | Select *phone*,Office*,work*
pramod1Author Commented:
it doesn't pull the work number , it is blank , should I fill with correct number

what command should I use to update the work number with correct number
FOXActive Directory/Exchange EngineerCommented:
Please send a screenshot of what you see in outlook which you said contains the wrong number
I want to make sure you are editing the correct property

Also run the below to view all properties
Get-ADuser "userssamaccountname"  -properties *  | fl

Verify if the wrong work number is in that list of properties

That screenshot you sent doesn't even match the command you put up there.

Run this command and paste the output
Get-AdUser 'Samaccountname' -properties * | fl
