I'm have the telephoneField on my Active Directory and it's mapped to a Sharepoint Profile field. It's reading the data from the AD just fine, the thing is that the user can change the phone number and i need this change to go to the AD too. I tried to create a Export mapping from the Profile to the AD but it won't let me.

I can't have a import and export mapping on the same field, or after i do a import, i delete this map and create the export one?

hope i'm clear enough.

You cannot have import and export configured for the same field. You could try to change to Export once you have imported.

Yeah, that's what i'm going to do. Seems the logical way to do it correctly – C. Hoffmann Nov 19 '10 at 12:12
