Hi All

When I try to export the contatcs from within the Apple Address Book it only offers

- Export Group Vcard
- Address Book Archive

How do I save contacts as a .csv?

Many thanks in advance for answering this probably anoyingly simple problem.

It's not directly supported, you'll need a third party utility to do this.

This might help:

I think MacTalk forum members are going to singlehandedly crash that site before long...

Thanks Dave

That is really annoying by Apple to not have this most basic function supported. When shit like this happens it makes you resent their attempts to try and 'lock' you into their system. It's just to, well shall we say, Microsoft!

I also realised today, that as I own Bento, I can export from there easily.

Thanks again.
