Department column always return empty results

Oct 30, 2011 at 10:42 AM

I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 + SharePoint 2010 environment where user's have related departments.

User Profile Sync Service is off but I've manually edited the departments of the users by writing small C# app. I'm sure that the app is working because I actually see the changes when browsing the user's profiles.

But, when I query for the users via the MOSS 2010 Query Tool, the Department column always returns empty.

Any help?
