Word wont 'select addresses form an Outlook contacts folder' ?

For any subfolder to appear in the address book view, it must be enabled as
an "email address book," so you must enable each one. Which begs the

Hidden Contacts

We have no idea what you mean by "contact list." There is no such term used

Outlook has not used a PAB file for over a decade. It should not even be on

Full Name field is blanked out in Contacts Pane.

Odd question. Normally the Reading Pane is not even used in any view of a

change distribution list action

No. Probably best just to learn how to use the menu.
Use "remove" instead of "delete"
You already have a backup if you make a mistake: just retrieve the DL from
the Deleted Items Folder.

No, not directly to a DL. You can only import data in those formats directly
into your Contacts Folder.

Word has never been able to use the Windows Address Book. It only integrates
