Title

Partial Address Book address data imports into FMP 10 incorrectly

Post

FileMaker Product(s) involved:

FileMaker Pro 10.0v1 (demo), Bento 2.0.3

 


Operating System(s) involved:

Mac 10.5.6
 

Detailed description of the issue:

I am using File>Import Records>Bento Data Source... or File>New Database>Create a database from an existing: Bento source to pull all records from the Apple Address Book (v4.1.1) into FMP 10. When a partial address is entered for a contact in the Address Book, the empty address fields display as empty in Bento, but are incorrectly imported into FMP containing what appears to be a full address calculation. 

 

 

 

Exact steps to reproduce the issue:

1.  Create a contact in Address Book with partial address information; for example only the home address City and State.

2.  In FMP 10 create a new database from an existing Bento Source, and select Address Book and Entire Library.

 

3.  In the resulting FMP database, view the contact record.

 

Expected Result:

Home Address _Street_ <empty>

Home Address _City_ City

Home Address _State_ ST

Home Address _Zip_ <empty>

Home Address _Country_ <empty>

 

Actual Result:


Home Address _Street_  City, ST

Home Address _City_ City

Home Address _State_ ST
Home Address _Zip_  City, ST
Home Address _Country_  City, ST
