    Adding own column in AD

    Hi all

    In Windows 2003 Server Active Directory, how do you add your own column. What I mean is, i want to add Notes, from the Telephone Tab, but when I go to View, Add/Remove Columns, I can only add a select few, as we need to make notes in AD about kids passwords and why they are banned from the system.

    Does anyone know how to add this to the list of available columns.

    Thanks in advance...

    Tim

    You will need to modify the schema but it's not a straight forward task.

    As far as i know that is the only way, there might be some tools out there but i haven't used them. There's a few FAQ's out there.

    The alternative is to use a web page to do this. You can then edit any of the fields which are available or you can use a database linked on user ID in which you can store as much data as you want.
