Brian, we're not dealing with the address book view in Outlook here. We're

Word wont 'select addresses form an Outlook contacts folder' ?

For any subfolder to appear in the address book view, it must be enabled as

We have no idea what you mean by "contact list." There is no such term used

view? Do you mean your address book view? Do...

Odd question. Normally the Reading Pane is not even used in any view of a

change distribution list action

No. Probably best just to learn how to use the menu.
Use "remove" instead of "delete"
You already have a backup if you make a mistake: just retrieve the DL from
the Deleted Items Folder.

Start by explaining what you really did. We have no idea what you mean by

Don't make us try to guess what you did.

No, not directly to a DL. You can only import data in those formats directly

Word has never been able to use the Windows Address Book. It only integrates
with Outlook. You'll need the same version of Outlook as Word.
