How to create a duplicate address book contact?

This seems so simple yet I cannot determine how to create a new duplicate address book contact. I have a few contacts from the same company and want to change the variable data instead of re entering the data
I can create a new contact, copy the data of the record I want to duplicate yet when I paste the info into the new record - address book puts everything into one field.
Why not a duplicate contact command?
GRRRR

Rich,
According to Address Book Help:
To duplicate an address card:
Select an address card.
Choose Edit > Copy, and then choose Edit > Paste.
Works for me

  • How do I sync my address book contacts on my iphone and clear all other contacts on my phone (issue with icloud?)

    When I purchased my iphone 4S, I had all my old phone's information transfer over to my new phone. 
    I organized my address book on my mac powerbook and then hoped to sync my computer's address book to my phone - in hopes of erasing all the junky contacts on my iphone and only having the my address book contacts on my phone.
    I did all I could trying to make this happen (through iTunes) but it hasn't erased/replaced all of the contacts on my phone - I believe since my phone is synced to icloud.  So I'm stuck with a very unorgaized contacts list on my phone...
    How can I make it so I only have the contacts from my address book on my phone?
    Thanks in advance,
    Suzanne 

    Also, I just noticed that syncing my phone effected my calendar in that all my events now repeat.  So instead of having one event schedule on a day, I have two of the same events scheduled for the same time.
    It seems as if I can't sync my phone to my computer through iTunes and iCloud. 
    Help???

  • How do I transfer my address book/contacts from my computer to my ipad?

    I recently purchased an iPad 1st generation, so I am in the learning mode. I want to have my adress book contacts on my Macbook Pro, available to me on my iPad. How do I go about this? Thank you

    On your Macbook Pro, go to "system preferences", click "icloud" and then check the box for "contacts". Then on your iPad, go to "settings", click "icloud" and make sure that the "contacts" option is "on". That should work.

  • Profile Manager - How to Wipe User's Address Book / Contacts

    Hello All,
    I have deployed about 90 MacBooks to a middle school.. when creating my Master Image, I didn't realize there were some contacts left over in the Contacts App... so now each student has about 10 local contacts when they launch the app.
    I am using the Profile Manager on Mavericks to configure all of these laptops.
    How can I, using Profile Manager on Mavericks Server, remotely wipe all of those contacts?

    Well.. not that anybody responded, but this isn't possible with Profile Manager.. but it is possible with Apple Remote Desktop.

  • How do I recover an address book contact deleted by mistake?

    Deleted a contact by mistake and need to put it back. Don't have the original email from the contact.

    So I downloaded and installed the Add-on. . . and had to restart TB, which emptied my trash folder (where the deleted contact was presumably housed). And, when I visited the add-on after installation, I found nothing relating to recovery of any kind. It's mostly about importing and manipulating vCards, which I'm not interested in.
    So, no, it didn't help. I'll keep the add-on for a bit, in case someone can tell my how its recovery function is supposed to work.

  • Are my Address Book contacts in iCloud or On My Mac?

    Is there some reason why, since iCloud, we have to have duplicates of every Contact in our Address Book?
    Additionally, when I'm cleaning up my Address Book on my MacBook Pro (10.7.3) there's no way to tell if a contact is in "On My Mac" or "iCloud".
    I have seen no clear discussion of this. If I change an entry for "John Q Smith" in my Address Book, why doesn't it "Unify" as they do on my iPhone? I end up with two different Address Book entries, one in either iCloud or "On My Mac" with the changes and another without the changes.
    There is no field on an "Address Book" contact indicating its source ["On My Mac", or "iCloud"].
    Why do I need two entries for every entry in my Address Book? This issue has been correctly identified and treated on the iPhone — I get a "Unified" classification and a change to the Contact happens synchronously.

    I am already configured for, and using iCloud as my default account.
    If I select "All Contacts", I have duplicates of every entry in my Address Book.
    When I select the corresponding option on my iPhone, I get "Unified Contacts" — this is GOOD and SMART — when I change a 'Unified' contact on my iPhone, all the entries are synchronously changed. This is how Mac OS X 10.7.3's Address Book should be treating these entries. Is there not an option somewhere to activiate this same feature?
    IF I REMOVE "ON MY MAC" FROM MY ADDRESS BOOK ACCOUNTS, I WILL BE UNABLE TO SYNCHORONISE MY ADDRESS BOOK WITH ANY OTHER SERVICE SUCH AS GOOGLE OR YAHOO. This is highly undesireable. As lovely and singular as is Apple and it's products, there are other services in the world with which I must coordinate and this is beyond my control.
    It looks like, from the responses above, that I will be editing every duplicate Address Book contact for the foreseeable future if I want to have non-Apple sync-able contact database as well as be on iCloud, which I do love.

  • Importing AOL Address Book/Contact List into Apple Mail Program

    This is probably an old and already answered queation, but it has just come up for me. Does anyone know how to export the AOL Address Book/Contact List so it can be imported into the Apple Mail Program? I would like not to have to reinter all the address when I drop AOL.
    @ GHz Intel Core Duo   Mac OS X (10.4.4)   No DVD

    The AOL Service Assistant works fine for transfering the AOL contacts to the Apple Address Book. However, I was unable to get the AOL favorites to tansfer to Safari. It keeps hanging up with the rotating basketball. Any further suggestions?

  • G-mail doesn't accept my 5.1.10 version of Safari. Will a newer version allow me to transfer my address book contacts to g-mail?

    I recently forwarded my e-mail from my local provider to g-mail. How do I transfer my address book contacts to g-mail contacts. Or how do I use MacMail with a g-mail account?

    Add the Gmail account to Mail/Preferences/Accounts. Click the + sign at the bottom left and add it.
    Try another browser as a test.
    Firefox
    If you want to upgrade the OS, the following applies.
    Check that your computer is compatible with Mountain Lion/Mavericks/Yosemite.
    To check the model number hold down the option/alt key, go to the Apple menu and select System Information.
    MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) model number 5,1 or higher
    MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) model number 3,1 or higher
    Your Mac needs:
    OS X v10.6.8 or OS X Lion already installed
    2 GB or more of memory (More is better - 4 GB minimum seems to be the consensus)
    8 GB or more of available space
    Check to make sure your applications are compatible. PowerPC applications are no longer supported after 10.6.

  • My wife has iCloud on our computer and I want to break out and create my own account. Once I build the account how do I copy the address book from her account into mine?

    my wife has icloud on our computer and I want to break out and create my own icloud account. I've built the account but can't figure out how to COPY our joint address book onto my account so I can then weed out my own addresses. Please help!

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    When you log out of the joint account, you should be asked if you want to keep the contacts, you do. When you log into your new account you should be asked if you want to merge contacts, you do.
    If you have already signed into your new account and not taken these options, the simplest thing to do might be to add your wife's account back as a secondary account in system preferences > mail, contacts & calendars. In groups in address book you can drag contacts from your wife's contacts onto your contact group to copy them.

  • How do I create a separate Address Book? I'm not asking about a mailing list but an address book where the addresses are not mixed in with my regular address b

    How do I create a separate Address Book? I'm not asking about a mailing list but an address book where the addresses are not mixed in with my regular address book. I already have three address books created for me by Thunderbird. I add all new addresses to one of those but am afraid to delete the other address books because some of their addresses are not repeated in my "main" address book. So if I don't delete all the names in one of the existing books, I need to create an empty book that will not mix the addresses with those in another address book. HOW DO I CREATE A NEW, EMPTY ADDRESS BOOK? I want to be able to create various mailing LISTS using the addresses in this new book so I will eventually have a special address book with a variety of mailing lists I can use as I wish.

    In 24.4.0 there is no File|New|Address Book. There is File|New|Address Book Contact. How do I create a new address book ?

  • "create or select an existing address book contact to represent your data"

    After upgrading the firmware on my Storm, everything seems to be back to the "stupidphone" state, like it just came out of the box.
    I had no idea that would happen; no warning, etc. Trying to send a Blackberry Messenger text to a contact, I now discover I have to scroll through a bunch of EULAs ... probably for every little thing on the phone, from the looks of it.
    I'm trying to get back the Blackberry Messenger contacts I had.
    I have no screen name anymore ... reset that ... OK [grumble grumble].
    No Blackberry contacts. The backup in Blackberry Desktop Manger adds ... nothing.
    So, obviously, the Desktop software is useless, as I did back up everything before I did the update.
    There is some babbling on the screen about some other undefined backup option. When I try to enable that, it says:
    "create or select an existing address book contact to represent your data."
    "Represent"? What in the world do you mean by "represent"?
    And what kind of contact should I be selecting? Some random fool? Myself? Can't Blackberry figure out I want this backed up to something I control?
    Please explain EXACTLY what this "dance around the concept" babbling means. I propose we try the English language.
    Also, how do I get my Blackberry Messenger contacts back?

    1. You only have to accept the EULA once.

    No Blackberry contacts. The backup in Blackberry Desktop Manger adds ... nothing.
    2. That's of no help to anyone who might want to assist you. "Nothing" is correct.
    What does happen? You go to Backup/Restore > Advanced... and what? You do nothing?
    Try over the left hand pane > File > Open > Select your most recent BlackBerry Messenger contact database and restoring it.
    Did you ever backup your BBM contacts OTA or to your Media Card?

    I use my iPad to get the address book backed up by iCloud from my iPhone. However, I cannot see the recent new contacts from my iPad. Is there anyway to check the iCloud server to see if my address book backup from my iPhone is still there?

    Is there a fix to deleting already deleted address book contact, from messages search? i.e. when you type in say letter c in messages search, all contact with a c, past already deleted and current all appear?  How do you make the old deleted ones appear?

    only way is to restore the phone as new.  OR wait until IOS 7 comes out in the fall.
