  Introduction to System.DirectoryServices, Part 2
Subject:   Great stuff, one little "but"

Excellent tutorial -- thanks for explaning the code instead of just tossing it out there.

I had one problem. Based on the example, I wrote the following line (entry is a DirectoryEntry object returned from a search):

entry.Properties(propName)(0) = newValue

This line fails with System.NotSupportedException

However, changing it to this made it work:

entry.Properties(propName).Value = newValue

Weird, huh. Could it be because the particular property name I was trying to update ("l" aka City) does not support multiple values?
