YASQ - AD Assistant field not correctly imported into SharePoint User Profile database

In Active Directory, a users Assistant attribute requires a Distinguished Name (DN) format, similar to the Manager field. If you import the Assistant field into SharePoint it does not resolve this to the user name. With the Manager field this works without a problem... Yet Another SharePoint Quirk

When trying to map the MOSS Assistant attribute to the AD attribute called Assistant, we found that this did not render correctly. We then mapped Assistant to the AD attribute msExchAssistantName .
This worked perfectly! This one's for Ken!
