write multi Adress vcard .vcf File from SQL-Table for Android Import

marbeja posted 5 years ago in Import/Export
I have around 8600 user address records with mail and telephone from my WebPages (B2evo) and would like to import them regularly in my Android Smartphones.

I guess I am not the first one that likes to do so!

The only import options are simcard (useless for 8600) and Vcard .vcf

The file format is explained here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VCard

It seems possible with SQL / PHP but also with Heidi if you can produce a text file with leading column names in every row.

Unfortunately I am not very good in coding. Can anyone help?

P.S: I found demo versions of csv to vcard converters, but it seems not very handy to buy these and migrate over .csv first....

All Help very much appreciated - Greetings from sunny Spain!

So, you're asking for someone who develops a CSV to VCard converter for you? Go and do that with PHP by yourself, it's not that difficult.

Or try out ready to use converters, e.g. CSV2VCF

Noooo I want to directly go from SQL to Vcard

I am now using MySQL to export XML and convert XML to VCF with a search and replace macro but that is very slow

CSV to VCard converters exist plenty it seems
but thanx for the link, this one seems open source!
