Dave, I’m completely clueless when it comes to programming, so I have a question that hopefully has an easy answer. Can I get the contacts in Palm’s software into the Mac OS X Address Book without too much difficulty?
You can indeed. Here are the exact steps you need to go through:
First off, launch your Palm desktop application, then from the File menu choose Export. You’ll get a window that looks like this:
As you can see, I’ve chosen Addresses as the module, and vCard as the format.
Now click on the “Export” button and you’ll have a new file on your desktop. That’s all we need Palm Desktop for, so you can quit it if you want.
Next, it’s time to launch Address Book. Choose File –> Import –> vCards and select your newly created data file in the window:
That’s basically it. Address Book will import all your contacts and you’ll be good to go!
Hope that helps you out.
