The following examples show how to move an object within a hierarchy because of a change in a Forefront Identity Manager Synchronization Service (FIM Synchronization Service) database (metaverse) object. The example moves the object according to the value of the department attribute.

Public Sub Provision(ByVal mventry As MVEntry) _

				Case Else

			End Select

		End If
