Address Book Exporter is a little utility that does one thing, and one thing only: it will let you export your Mac OS X Address Book as a tab-delimited plain text file. Apple doesn't include this feature in its application, though you may want to have it to create mailing lists, upload address books to webmail servers, etc...

What's New

Version 2.1.2 fixes the following:
  • Added Outlook export template.
  • Updated Palm Desktop template to make it match Palm Desktop 4's format.
  • Added "Other" field export for Address, Email and Phone.
  • Added a Check for Updates... feature (manual or automatic).
  • Added optional textured windows support. There is no GUI yet for this feature. You will have to type defaults write more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

As I couldn't download it from the dev anymore (seems to have packed up and gone home), I did a little search and found these still working links (at the time of writing). Grab them while they're there if you need this.

I can't get this to totally work. I managed to download from the 2nd link but when I try to create an envelope, it asks me for the return address, can't use mail merge from that source. Then when I try to do it from the mail merge, it doesn't configure the envelope correctly. It prints it along the top left of the envelope that has to go in lengthwise from the back. (I'm not explaining that correctly). So...it would appear that somehow I've exported my address book to a document but I still cannot appropriate merge to use to print envelopes. This is a REALLY bad oversight for Mac.

My goal was to get my contacts out of Address book and into Windows Live Mail. WLM would not import the .vcf file that the Address Book export generated.

I used Address Book Explorer to get contacts out of Address book as a txt file then dropped this file into Numbers. I then used Numbers to convert the file to a .cvs file which WLM contacts would import

I hope this helps

The info block for the app shows that it was releases in 2003, when Intel Macs were just a gleam in Steve's eye. The platform is listed as PPC (aka PowerPC).

Lion has removed Rosetta, the compatibility layer that let you run PPC apps.

So, you can't run this on Lion, unless you dredge up a Snow Leopard disc and try installing Rosetta.

Brilliant!! I wish that I had found this earlier.

I was really looking for an exporter to a spreadsheet (eg Excel) but this did the trick. I copied the text file into Word, converted to a table, and took the file into Excel. Easy!!

Many thanks indeed.

Address Book Exporter 2.1.2. Works perfectly and quickly. Immediately solved a problem that I had trying to get a contact list to PC users. Why didn't Apple include this? Thanks.

Hello, thank you BUT : Clicking on "export ALL" did not work when I tried to import the txt doc into Palm Desktop, the problem may be coming from Palm also. It only exported the addresses that were groups. It also duplicated cards (since some cards were in 2 or 3 # groups). Any suggestions?
