Let’s take a closer look at Address Book Manipulator operations. In this video we’ll review Pulling Contacts, as well as Pushing Contacts.

0:19 So I’ve opened the demo file, and I’ve already registered the plug-in in “LIVE” mode.

0:25 Next let’s navigate to the “Pull/Push” tab. This tab allows you to exchange data between Address Book and FileMaker. I’ll go ahead and select this button to import all contact records. Here we can see that a total of 9 records have been brought in.

0:46 To open a specific record, select this blue arrow. The details of the contact will be displayed. Fields in yellow are read-only. The Address Book ID is a unique ID assigned to every record.

1:03 To the left you have various options with these buttons. This button will add a new contact record here in FileMaker.

1:14 I’ll go ahead and update this record. To apply changes, select the “Add / Update AB” button. You’ll be prompted if you’d like to update just this record, or all of the records in the found set. I’ll select “Single.” Here we can see the sales e-mail has been added.

1:49 Select this button to create a new contact. I’ll go ahead and insert an image here. To add the record to Address Book, select this button. Here is the new contact record that was just added.
