All,

Is there a way to import files from FileMaker Pro to Mac Contacts?

I've searched and found nothing.

Larry

You need to export to a CSV file from Filemaker.

Then use excel to format the csv file to a format Contacts will easily import

firstname,lastname,homeEmailAddress,workEmailAddre ss,homePhone,workPhone,street,city,state,zipcode

Louis,
I've tried that, and Mac Mail will not recognize a CSV file so I can't import it.
I saved it right out of FM Pro and tried to import to Mail, and the file didn't even show up.

Ideas?
