No, I can't think of any way - if they have permission to view the contacts, they can do anything they want with the data they see. Some ways might be faster (copy the contact vrs retyping the contact data) but you can't prevent it.

I'am testing, to check when contact is open if parent folder is my good shared folder and if not, i could delete the item . If it's ok i'll be back with the code. Thank you

That should work on your desktop, but it won't prevent others from copying unless the macro is also running on their computer. That's what I thought you were trying to prevent.

Correct, you'll need to use an addin on all computers where you want to keep users from copying the contacts. Smart users who really wanted to make a copy still could though.
