Is there a way to copy the members in the Distribution list to my contact folder?

Any help is appreciated.

Oh, sorry. I'm reffering to MS Outlook 2002. I want to copy the members in the distribution list and put it in my contact folder. I don't want to retype everything again from the distribution list.

Well, having not used it before, the first thing I'd do is see if there's a way to export the distribution list as a CSV (comma separated variables) file.

Then import into the address book from that CSV file.

I don't think so.

the list itself can be copied to your contacts folder, but the contents
are just data, not actual contacts.

So another word, I can't copy the contents of the distribution list then.

Thanks!

correct. the list simply references the contact list, so if what's
listed in the distrib list isn't in the contacts, it doesn't know
anything more than if you typed in Jon Doe 100 times. ;)
