I've seen a few programs that make this possible, but none of them seem to be able to export the groups I've created under my exchange server folder. I don't use the local folder, only the exchange folder.


Am I missing something? Can anyone give a tip to help me out?

    I don't have any exchange accounts so I can't speak of the differences but you should always be able to just select all contacts in a group in address book and drag them to the desktop. that should create a vcard for all those contacts on the desktop which can then be converted to csv. you can use this converter for example

    CSV stands for Comma Separated Values, sometimes also called Comma Delimited. A CSV file is a specially formatted plain text file which stores spreadsheet or basic database-style information in a very simple format, with one record on each line, and each field within that record separated by a comma.

    For Microsoft Entourage, you export your Entourage contacts as a tab delimited file. Excel can import a tab delimited file. In Excel, you Change the "Save as type" or "Format" field to read: "CSV (Comma delimited)". more info

    I checked in Apple Address Book and it doesn't appear that you can export as a text file. You can try this script that is supposed to work with the Address Book to create a .csv file.
