I have all my contacts from Outlook imported to a CSV file on the desktop of my Macbook 10.5.8. Double clicking on it opens the contents in a crazy fashion in an Open Office spreadsheet. But I wish to install them into the Address Book.
Help to do this would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Open Address Book, click File then Import and browse to the file.

Hi gehena,

Thanks for your quick reply. However, when I open the Address Book and click on File\Import\Desktop, the options which appear are all greyed out, including the entry vcards-1.CSV.

So I'm stumped and if you have any suggestions, they will be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Stuart - you could give this address book importing utility a go: sillybit .. abee (http://www.sillybit.com/abee/)

I've never tried it, so can't vouch for it's effectiveness, but it looks reasonably straightforward.
