I use my iPad at tradeshows to collect email addresses of attendees who voluntarily (upon promise of a bottle of rum) give them to me. On my iPad those names are grouped by cities. Prior to my conversion to Mac from PC I would simply synch my the contacts with Outlook, convert the file to Excel and upload it. Now however I cannot figure out how to get a group from my Mac Address book (which is synced across my iPad and iPhone) into any format that I can then load to Constant Contact. If anyone has any ideas on this it would be greatly appreciated.

You can export your contacts from your Apple Mail or Mac Mail Address Book as a vCard file.

To export an individual contact from your Apple Mail Address Book as a vCard:
To export all contacts from your Apple Mail Address Book as a vCard:
Note: You can also convert your Mac vCard to a CSV file using the vCard to LDIF/CSV Converter.
Important: The file being converted cannot be larger than 8MB. Within the vCard to LDIF/CSV Converter web page, click Choose File to select the vCard file that you just exported. On the Format drop-down menu, please select "Gmail (CSV) and check box for "vCards with e-mail only". Next to filter, please check the box for "vCards with e-mail only". Click Convert. You will be prompted to save the converted CSV file to your computer so you can import it into Constant Contact. If you have multiple vCard files, this process must be repeated for each file.
When I do this, it makes me choose upwards of 25 different categories to assign all the different data points that get all jumbled during the conversion. Is there a better solution available or coming soon that will allow contacts to be uploaded via .vcf or straight from the address book?
