Exporter for Address Book is the perfect tool for exporting your local address book stored on your Mac to formats such as Excel, CSV, Tab-delimited text, HTML and XML.
The app lets you choose which properties your export from your address book, allowing you to select only the information you want to export into other email clients and business applications.
Please Note: Only local contacts and iCloud synced contacts are supported. Remotely stored contacts will need to be copied over locally before they can be exported.
- Bug fix for crashing issue on High Sierra
Ratings and Reviews
I’m using Excel for MAC 2008 (upgraded from 2004). No trouble export as a .xlsx format and viewing in Excel.
Excel-2008 and OpenOffice-4 can open both .xlsx and .csv version. Make sure to select “sperated by comma” checkbox for OpenOffice.
You might have to clean up a few rows if using .xlsx in OpenOffice (best to use .csv).
Seeing ALL my contacts as a spreadsheet, helps me “clean up” all the contacts, making sure older entries or accidental entries (putting email into a telephone field . . ) is fixed.
I can also combine various spreadsheets from other devices (iCloud will make this obsolete for me soon) and then upload them back to the apps like Apple Contacts.
I just downloaded and tried to use it. I selected all contacts (65 total) from a group of contactss and moved them to the right as requested. Then I see hondreds of “phone” and other categories and contacts from other grous that I didn’t want to export. Never could get the program to work. I am trashing it and requesting a return of my money. The program is unusable.
It crashed since I opened it. I will request the refund. Review: November 2018.
