free address book portable

I unpacked FreeAddressBook portable, and then copied it to a unique folder. Running the program gives an "error"dialog in what appears to be Turkish or Hungarian, ending in English "connection String." The program runs fine from the original unpacked destination.

Import Issues

My client has over 2,000 contacts.
1. Testing I find that this only imports to around 100 contacts instead of the 580 contacts I have in my export sheet. (Excel CSV). Cannot find the problem. Need answer quickly.

2. After import, there are several records that went wrong. Some show Last Name as a state, some show Zip code in Company Name, etc. Maybe only 20 imports did this. Checking my source CSV file, there is nothing at all wrong. Everything is where it should be. How do I correct this? Need answer quickly.

Import Issues 2

NOTE: I resolved this! Found FreeAddressBook import does NOT like null or empty fields! Filled these all in with, "Unknown" and all 572 imported with no errors!

Creating subfolders

I have been given "general" folder that can contain subfolders, but I do not know how to create a new folder with its own subfolders. Help anyone?

Re: Creating subfolders

Hi Kristina,

you can create subfolders (groups) into every folders. When you open the "Group editor" select the folder where you want to add the subfolder and press the New button. So, you always have to select the folder (which will be the parent) where you want to create the subfolder.

Hope I could help you.

multiple databases

is it possible to have more than 1 contact database (mdb file)?

Re: multiple databases

No, this is not possible. If you want more database, then you have to use two instance of program. Download the portable version, and copy the program into two different directory. Create shortcuts for both instance, and with this, you can use separated databases.
