How can I find out to which OU a user object belongs?

How can I find out which OU a user object belongs to? Is there some GUI or utility that gives me this information? I can find which security groups a user belongs to, but not which OU.
The fully qualified name of any user object will include the OU that they are a member of: dc=jsmith, ou=sales, for example. Since a user object can only be a member of one OU at a time, you can use an LDAP or ADSI query to return all users within a given OU.
