Migrate contact groups from Entourage 2004 to Address Book
Authored by: dianeross on May 01, '09 08:18:40PM

Since Entourage does not export contacts in groups, it's especially important to add each group member to the Address Book. Assign a category to the contact like this: Group: Family. (by using Group as the first part of each group name, it makes it easy to sort and to list when addressing the group names.)

Now that you have all group members in your Address Book with a category, select to export under File as Entourage archive (.rge) file and select category (select the group name) from the popup. Now you have an .rge file with just that group.

Next step is to create a new Identity in Entourage. Don't bother to add account info. Just cancel that out. Import the .rge file into this new Identity. Now you can export the contacts as a tab delimited file.

Another option is to check out this script: Sync categories in Entourage with groups in Address Book: http://www.jonn8.com/html/SyncEntourageABGroups.html

If you have ever had to recovery group members after a crash, you'll be sorry if you didn't add them to the Address Book.
