all of the entries in my address book have the first AND last name listed under the "first name" box and the last name box is empty (how it got this way is a long and irrelevant story, just trust me on this one) ie: if the name was Joe Smith first name: Joe Smith last name: [blank] it is absolutely imperative that i fix this, so that it looks like this: first name: Joe last name: Smith HOWEVER, i have 1000s of contacts, so this isnt exactly something i can do manually one by one!!! maybe some sort of applescript would do the trick...? (i know nothing about applescript, of course... so convenient.) i hope this isnt as impossible as i think it is! if you cant help me, might you be able suggest any other forums that i could ask on? (i dont know if this is the right place to ask this type of question) THANKS!!!!
