I think you Export a vCard out of Address Book (File/Export) to somewhere easy to find (desktop, etc), then go to your gmail Contacts and choose "More" and import the vcard. see if that helps, and if not, we can go from there.
Yes, that's the way it seems. I was thinking if it would make a difference if I opened the address book and highlighted every address and then see if they will go that way...I'm clutching at straws! I'll try and see what happens.
Further to my recent reply, I have again followed your instructions and with the same result except that I started to click something which I'm not sure what and the addresses appeared. The second time a vCard icon showed on my desktop and I think? I dragged it over to my contacts. However, all's well that ends well. It then took me several minutes to figure out how to send an email. Thanks again Roger. jaybass
