Default Export OL 2007 Distribution List-Members Page only displays file

Hello:
How can I get a Distribution List to display the individual contacts on the
Members page when I double-click to view it?

Other lists are working normally, but not this one.

I'm trying to do this so I can save this Distribution List to a .txt file,
then import the names/e-mail addresses into Excel 2007.

1. In Contacts, I double-click on the DL to open the Distribution List window.
2. The Members page appears, but instead of the individual names and e-mails
addrs, there is an DG icon for the file.
3. Clicking the icon opens the properties window for the DL displaying the
General, Member Of and E-mail addresses tabs.
4. All the names and emails I am looking for back in Step 2, appear as
expected in the General Tab-Members panel, so it's clear that the file
contains the data I want.

Thanks for all the help on this board!

File: Save as .txt results in a text file that just shows the name of the DL
and under Members: the name of the DL again.

So you have a DL nested in a DL? If you click forward, internet format on
the second DL does the attached text file have the addresses?

Thanks, Diane.
Great idea, but the resulting .txt file just shows the name of the DL
and under Members: the name of the DL again.

How did you create the DL? Does it work to send email? Is there a DL inside
the DL?

Hello:

I asked the person that created the DL to export and send a .txt file.
That worked, it has 470 email addresses.
I guess this is a permissions/rights security issue, so I'll drop it.

Thanks again, Diane:

No need to multipost. If you are searching in the address book view, cease
and desist. Search your Contacts Folders for this DL instead.
