    I was able to export the file to an Excel spreadsheet, except that it didn't export my user-defined columns, which made the spreadsheet useless! I could not see any way to do that. Do you?

    I had created an distribution list that I now want to export to excel. I need to be able to see each of the names in the list but using this export function does not allow me to do that. Please help :) Thanks
