Export Outlook Contacts to Access including distribution lists

I need to export the Contacts from Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2010 to an access file but I need to include the distribution lists.  The export wiz in Outlook that writes an Access file appears to only include single contact records - it doesn't include the distribution lists.  Has anyone seen any scripts out there (or free sofware) that take care of this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you tried exporting to CSV and then import using Access?

Never tried that!
A workqaround you find a better solution.
From the contacts table in access (you exported that to access table), add a column: listID
Open the table and add 1 for list 1, 2 for list 2 and so on.
Create another table for lists(listID, listName, desc, info,  ...)
1 list1, ....
2 list2, ....

Join the 2 tables on listID, and continue your work.
