I have a folder hierarchy as follows:




Public folders


> ..All Public Folders


> .....Dept


> ........Distribution List




How do I create an Outlook Distribution List in a folder other than the default "Contacts" folder ("Distribution List")? I have a folder object with the FullFolderPath where I want the DL to be saved, but DistListItem.SaveAs(fld.FullFolderPath, Outlook.OlSaveAsType.olTXT) gives me an error {"The operation failed."}. I can start Outlook and manually get to the DL folder, though.




Thanks,


Scott
 
DistListItem.SaveAs(fld.FullFolderPath, Outlook.OlSaveAsType.olTXT) will

attempt to save that DL as a text file in the file system at the path you're

providing.

If the folder is a contacts folder use

folder.Items.Add(olDistributionListItem) where folder is your folder. The

function will return a DL object.

Works great! Thanks, Ken.
