    Importing .csv address book


    Hello, I am quite new at linux. I am trying to import my addressbook from a thumb drive. Linux recognizes it without any problem. I've found how to import the address book but i get a message that says "you must assign a column". What does this mean and how can i do this? All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Your *.csv file is made of rows, one for each person in your addressbook. The data of a person (name,e-mail address, phone nr...) are separated with ";" sign. So it interprets the file as a table. You should find some step where you can point at "Names" or similar.
    What kind of mail client are you trying to use?
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:
