    Hi!

    I have a massive list of email addresses that I need to import into Address Book. I tried creating a .csv file with the email addresses but I still could not import. Are there any tricks to adding these addressing without having to cut and paste one by one?? Thanks!!!!

    I did this last Christmas. I was successful exporting from Outlook Express (via .csv) and importing into Address Book. It worked pretty doggone good. I had to dig a little to find the proper specs to define the input file, but after I did that will a small sample, it worked like a champ for whole file.

    Can you write a script to make it CSV?

    Actually, I'm thinking it should import - just define it as a single field if that's all it is.

    It is just a single email field. When I import it into excel and make one column, save as .csv, and then try to import into Address Book I am getting an error...

    How else could I define as a single field? Thanks!

    I might be smarter than the average bear, but Karnak I am not.
