I backed up my contacts list in Tiger before installing Leopard. When I dragged the backed up files into the Address Book in Leopard, it only transferred the name and number. How do I get it to transfer the address, IM info, screen name, etc...? I basically want all the info from the Tiger version to import into the Leopard version.

Thanks in advance

You could make a .Mac trial account, then sync up your stuff, and then after installing leopard, sync it back in.

Did you drag out all the addresses in to an .VCF file

If you dragged the VCF file back in it should preserve the addresses, but saying that I haven't upgraded to Leopard yet

Address book has an export to vcard function; I've used that before and it worked flawlessly. Give that a try and it should work fine.
