How to import Address Book from one mac to another
I want to import the address book from my desktop to my laptop, both Mac Pros running snow leopard. I have a time machine backup from the desktop, but cannot figure out how to import the address book into the laptop address book.
Thanks in advance for your help,

Go to your desktop computer (Mac Pro or iMac or Mac mini),
navigate to Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Library / Application Support / AddressBook
and copy that AddressBook folder onto whatever storage device you use to transport files.
Go to your laptop
and navigate to Macintosh HD / Users / YOU / Library / Application Support /
and paste the AddressBook folder inside that Application Support folder.
You might need to confirm to replace the existing AddressBook folder with the AddressBook folder from the desktop.
Btw, a Mac Pro is not a laptop, a MacBook or MacBook Pro or a MacBook Air is a laptop.

I needed to copy the address book data from my old G5 to my new iMac.
I tried both methods - using the archive did not work, I ended up with a blank address book.
However many thanks to spinnerlys!
Copying the AddressBook folder from one machine to the other worked:
