you mean a "OU" field, if this is what you want just right click in active directory and then jsut choose organisational unit then give it the name you want and voila, but if it is to had a field like the one 's that come by default , then good luck, as per you have a lot to do for it to be there

^ No i dont think thats what he means...

You need to open the Schema Console mmc.

Right click attributes -> Create Attribute, follow the prompts...

An employee ID field is already present, but its not exposed through the ADUC interface.

You can either create some form of custom app/vbscript to work with the attribute, or modify the MMC, or use a preexisting field, such as a custom attribute field if you also have Exchange2k/2k3 installed.

I reccomend the last option.
