So I'm having some weird issues with deleting items from my address book using Applescripts... I run a delete script and nothing seems to happen, so I did a little test. First I ran: Code: tell application "Address Book" count (emails of people whose label is "mobile") end tell And it tells me '221' Then I run: Code: tell application "Address Book" delete (emails of people whose label is "mobile") end tell And it gives no errors. Finally I run the first script over again and it gives me 0. I'd think that all would be well, but I open address book and it seems like the items are still there. In fact, I know they are still there. I can close Address Book and then open it again and run the count script and it gives me 221 again! Any idea how to get these changes to stick?
