I have to migrate data from an old Adressbook to a new computer that has only "Contacts". Which is the easiest way?

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 10 GB

    If you're running Migration Assistant, it will automatically transfer contacts from the old application to the new.


    If you want to do it manually, and you can boot the old computer, you can export an archive using the File menu. Save it somewhere you can access it from the new computer (eg a flash drive), then use the Import menu to bring it back into Contacts.
