The bane of all data geeks’ existence? Converting data from one format to another. In a perfect world, all data would always simply be rows and columns with no additional anything. This is however, not the case. For example, a widely used data format for address books is the vCard, where the data is stored in .vcf files. If you open one of these up in a word processor, it’s all just gobblygook. In order to clean it up, (so that you can dump it cleanly into your own rows and columns) you need to do some fancy parsing footwork.
Or…. just go to the web.
There are many VCF converters out there. Many of them even specifically for Filemaker. But although they all kind of work, and many of them are even free, none is as easy as this online converter site.
Just go to this site listed abover, tag the vcf file you want to convert, and presto. It ain’t fancy, but it sure works. Better yet, it’s fast and free.
