I have some 7 contacts in my Distribution List named "A". Can I open the

Distribution List "A", add two more contacts, remove 3 existing contacts and

save the distribution list as "B" by

which distribution list "A" will not

be affected. "B" distribution list will have the changed distribution list

of 6 people. "A" will have the same 7 contatcs which it had before.

I am using MS Outlook 2007. It is for an office where I am working where

people do not want to create a copy of the

DL(Distribution List), amend it as desired, rename it, and save it. They

think just as you can open a Word Document

"A", change it, save it as "B" word document by which we

get a new word document "B" and "A" is untouched. We can do similar

things in Outlook contact list also.

Can someone please clarify if this is possible programmatically using VBA or

similar method? If so, how can it be

done?

Thanks

I'd make a copy of DistList_A using the Copy method and then modify that

copy as B as you want it modified.
