Default editing address book

Please Login to Remove!

Ok well I got desktop manager installed... finally.. however the stupid roxio media manager doesnt work, get a runtime error... im tired of messing with this junky software... anyways here is my question
I exported my address book into a ascii txt file. Is there any easy way to edit it.. seems to be some sort of order to it, using commas.. which looks to be a big pain to manually do this.. is there some software to assist with this editing?

Yes, do dump the Roxio media software, way clunky.

You exported your address from what?

An ascii file can be open very very easily in Excel, and edited there.

What are you trying to do? There could be an easier way.

I had the sim card i am using in another phone (samsung sync) and when i brought it over to the blackberry everything kinda got messed up, for people that have multiple numbers they ended up as multiple listings in the address book rather than being contained in one listing with multiple numbers.
i tried doing what it said in this link
Addressbook help
but the txt file is a big mess.
is there an easy way to fix up my address book without manually doing each one, or trying to mess with a mess txt file?

Yes, SIM cards only register one number per name.
i think i mentioned above, open your text file in Excel, it will be much easier. Edit it there, then import back to the BB.
