OK, so the boss wants me to but his 2000 entry contact database into his iPhone. The DB is in FMPro format. The only thing I can think of is to export the DB to a CSV/text file and then import that to Address Book. Then sync the iPhone.

I'm going to try it this afternoon. Anyone forsee any problems with this? Anyone have that many contacts in their iPhone yet?

Thanks for the links RTPics but our contact database is customized mess. It was started in FMPro5 and has about 20 people make changes to it over the years. Not sure how well those scripts would work.

I ended exporting the DB to Tab Delimited and then importing it into Address Book. I tried CSV but Tab seemed to work better. The hardest part was figuring out what the field names ment so that I could match them up in Address Book.

Now the boss has all 2874 contacts in his phone and is kinda miffed that there is no search function.
