Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not from within Outlook it’s not, no. Outlook is a read only tool for querying Active Directoy. You can fairly easily setup a webform which the users could then use to update the needed information in active directory, which would then be shown in everyones outlook address books.

    we are also using a word file for a phone directory. my question is, if you are getting rid of it, what are you going to use. our users don't want to sift through the contacts to find what they need. also they need to be able to print the phone directory to have on hand just in case the computers go down. has anyone found a way to query AD and create a phone directory with it? we also need a last page to list department numbers, fax numbers, etc. any help with this would be extremely appreciated.

    There is a third-party tool called Active Directory Update that lets users update their own Active Directory information. It was created by Exchange expert and author Jim McBee. It costs $299 per Active Directory domain. You can read more about the utility here. Good luck!
