Address Book Problems - Show 228

Recommended Posts

I was having problems similar to one of your listeners in regards to my Address Book and search results. My problems seemed to have been caused by me manipulating data via an AppleScript, and that seems to have upset the Address Book. I tried finding the offending record or contact, but I could never find anything wrong. This also affected finding contacts via Launchbar, which I assume finds it's contacts the same way Apple Address Book creates it's search results.


My solution?


1) Backup the Address Book: In Address Book, File -> Export -> Address Book Archive.


2) Delete the Address Book, and it's caches:

~/Library/Application Support/Address Book



3) Launch Address Book, and import all your contacts from the backup: File -> Import -> Address Book Archive


Search results now show all contacts.
