Import an Outlook CSV file to Address Book
Authored by: bkuestner on Sep 04, '05 08:27:39AM

On paper, yes, Tiger's Addressbook can directly import from csv or tab-separated text files. But there are so many bugs in there, I never got it to work in a good enough manner.

I filed a bug with Apple that has just one line, no special characters, but it still won't import for whatever reason.

It's not the line endings either, as I read that another user could narrow his problem down to having the wrong Mac/Unix/Windows style line endings.

It's another one of the many Tiger promises that Apple didn't keep. Very Microsoftish, unfortunately. I'm still on Tiger though, because other things are a clear improvement over Panther.
