Title

Importing vcard data into FileMaker Pro

Post

I am having difficulty finding a simple solution to import vcards into a FMP database.  I found Soliant's blog post and sample files (thank you), however, being a novice developer I was unable to iron out some of the wrinkles and the data is imported with undesired characters (semicolons and ones).  Is there an off the shelf solution for importing vcards, seems that this would be a rather common development need.  Many thanks.

Using FMP10 on Mac for a solution that will be deployed over a network using FMS 10.  The database will serve in part as a client relationship management tool and therefore, importing contact info via vcard would greatly decrease data entry time.
