I know how to import a database into my Contacts.

Is it possible to import database records into an existing Distribution List?

This would avoid having to manually add them to the existing Distribution

List.

You can't import into a DL. See this:

Can you drag and drop contacts into a distribution list?

Is there ANY way to get contacts into a distribution list other than by printing out the contacts first so you know what text you have to type into the search field, and then typing text from each contact into the search field, and then adding the found contact, one by one?

You can't drag and drop but there are ways to do it - create a view with just the email address field and copy the column then paste into the Members field. Or, you could address a message to the contacts you want in the dl then copy the names from the to field and paste into the dl.

Basics are here - create dl. The first part won't apply but the second section shows were to paste it.
