Export of contacts from Address Book to Numbers
Authored by: peterholdn on Dec 29, '11 11:50:10AM

Doesn't look like all of the data does export.

Spouse and Anniversary don't export, though things like Birthday, Nickname, and Maiden Name do. Actually, none of the other relationships (spouse, partner, child, mother, etc) seem to export

At least one of my contacts has two separate home addresses, and only one of them was exported. I have them both listed as "home" (which Address Book allows). Switching one to "other" lets it export.

It seems, on only brief experimentation, that if you have multiple fields with the same label (more than one home phone or email, more than one home or work address, etc), it only captures the first and ignores the rest.

As a result, this isn't useful to me. If I have it in the entry, I want it to export. Phooey.

Relax, it's only ones and zeroes.
