The following applescript will grab names and the birth date field from
the Address Book BUT only in Mac OS 10.2.3
Does anyone have the special Apple incantation for getting the
birth date from the Address Book BUT in Mac OS 10.2 up to 10.2.3??
Also - Happy Holidays to all!
tell application "Finder" to make file at desktop with properties
set exportFile to (((path to desktop) as string) & "Birthday
export.txt") as alias
tell application "Address Book"
set addressBookAsList to every person
open for access exportFile with write permission
repeat with i from 1 to count of addressBookAsList
set theName to (name of item i of addressBookAsList)
set theBirthDate to (birth date of item i of
addressBookAsList) as string
write (theName & tab & theBirthDate & return) as
string starting at eof to exportFile
