    I migrated my contact list from Microsoft Outlook via a CSV file. Everything went fine but for some reason I got a lot of weird characters in the notes section of every contact. Is there a way I can use automator to delete all the entries on the notes field of my Address Book?

    If anyone knows please let me know, including if a function is needed for Automator.

    Thanks

    You can do it with an applescript:

    tell application "Address Book"
    set thePeople to selection
    repeat with aPerson in thePeople
    set note of aPerson to " "
    end repeat
    end tell
