In fact, we use the contact list to create the people directory. the contact list imports the phone directory from client pc’s outlook address book. However, this list need update manullay and regualarly.

What I want is a list of users from the active directory users – If this info is used to create a my site page with these details you must somehow be able to use this data and display it in a table etc.  I just can not figure out how.

Use the Profile Importer.  This will pull in all of your AD Profiles into the SharePoint Profile database.  This is connected to the People content source.  One the profiles have been imported you can then use the standard SharePoint Search box to search for users.

Agree and you can also use the Mysite feature to add photo or other info to the user profile.

I then modified the mysite, edit profile page to write to AD.  That way the user can update their info directly to AD from their mysite page.  Otherwise, SPS can only download from AD.


 


I think the developers ran out of time for implementing the ability to write to AD from SPS.
