Import an Outlook CSV file to Address Book
Authored by: bichita on Mar 12, '08 10:17:15AM
I made the mistake of syncing my address book with Bento. There was no easy way to edit the contacts, so I exported them all into a CSV file. Much to my dismay, Address Book wouldn't read the CSV file and Bento couldn't handle taking all that data back in (it froze up every time I tried more than 200 contacts at once).

BUT! I just found this amazing FREE tool that took care of everything. OMG, Steve Roy, where have you been all my miserable workweek life!?! Address Book Importer matches up all the fields in your CSV file and syncs up with Address Book.... thus restoring clarity and order to my jumbled contacts list. And did I mention it was ridiculously fast!! (2500 contacts with 37 fields in less than a minute)

Ooooh, I know I sound like a commercial but this has been plaguing me for a week and I just had to share.

Seriously, I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this super easy-to-use program that put my headache at ease. (I even emailed the creator to thank him.)
