How do I delete all contacts EXCEPT for those in a particular group?

Hi,

 

I am using ACT! 2009 and I have a database with a few hundred contacts.  I made a copy of that database, which contains several different groups.  Is it possible to delete ALL contacts in the copied database EXCEPT for those that belong to a particular GROUP?

Thanks in advance for any help out there.

You have to be able to easily identify those Contacts in the given Group.

 

So, for example, if all of the Contacts in the given Group have a value of "X" in the User 1 field, and no other Contacts in the database have an "X" in the User 1 field, then it is easy to do a Lookup of all Contact that DO NOT have an "X" in the User 1 field and then delete that Lookup.
