    I have a problem with my adress book. I can't access the adresses starting with an A. I can select them, but the only numbers/adresses showing, are those of the first name in the book. (I'm having a hard time trying to explain this...) In mail, everything works just fine. I've done several fresh installations of the OS (10.3.9), but nothing seems to help. (I sync my adresses with an ipod and a phone, and everything is normal there too)

    If any of you understood what I was trying to explain, do you have any ideas of what is wrong?

    So are you saying that for the people whose names start with A will only show their first address or phone number? Is that the problem? :)

    This is actually a known Norwegian bug that I've run into a couple of times. I don't rember exactly what it was causin this, but it has something to do with how Address Book alphabetizes "Å" and "Aa". I'll post back if I remember more...

    Edit: I think it was like this: If someone's last name starts with "Aa" and you sort by last name Address Book goes nuts (maybe also if you have a first name starting with "Aa" and sort by first name, but I'm not sure about that).

    Sorry about the confusing explanation. But Mitthrawnuruodo solved my problem. It was a "norwegian bug". Thanks.
