Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 7:20 PM (in response to V.K.)Thanks V.K. for your response. I noticed that when I selected my .ldif file, the address book app wanted to wipe my address book entirely and use the import file.
Is there a way I can have it do a check on the current addresses I have like the 10.5 import process?
I just want to update my address book not over write it entirelyMacbook, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 2GB RAM
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 7:23 PM (in response to Lovell Mcilwain)hmm, not sure if there is a built in way to do that. i suggest you try this online converter
and convert youyr ldif file to a vcrad. then just drop it onto the address book. this will simply add the contacts, without removing the existing ones.Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Mac Pro 2.66GHz, powerbook G4 1.5GHz
Currently Being ModeratedOct 28, 2009 7:31 PM (in response to V.K.)Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately its a lot of work addresses so it would be hard for me to single out which ones actually needed to be converted. At least if they had the 10.5 way of doing it I could just use the file and it would decide which were duplicates and I could decide to not import them.
Hmm if not a way to do that possible a step backwards for snow leopard. I hope that isn't the case.
