    Could you be a bit more specific.

     

    There already is an Address Book on your Mac, are you trying to create a printed version of that?

     

    If not exactly what is it you need help with?

    Thanks. I have a bunch of addresses that are not on my computer. I want to type these into a document to

    create an address book, which I will then print. I tried by creating a table, but couldn't remove the cell borders and I'm thinking there may be a better way to do this. It's just straight typing  with names, addresses, phone, email etc in either 2 or 3 columns. Thanks again. Dottie

    Probably the best way is just to type straight text into a plain Word Processing template with tabs between the items.

     

    This can be turned into a table very easily by selecting it all:

     

    Menu > Format > Table > Convert Text to Table

     

    To hide table cells:

     

    Select the table > Table > Table > Cell borders > click on the line > None

     

    I do recommend for longer term use it would be better to fill in your addresses into Address Book/Contacts where it can be used everywhere.
