    Guys, is there an easy way to do this in address book? Supposing i have several contacts who work for the same company. they have similar company addressess and phone. they only fields that are different are the name, email, and mobile phone. is there a way for address book to automatically fill in the other fields? i don't want to re-type all of them one by one. thanks

    Hi Juan, in my case, the following fields autofill, provided there are previous entries in those specific fields in another card:

    First name
    Last name
    Company
    home page
    Friend
    Assistant
    Street
    City
    State
    ZIP
    Country

    You need to enter some letters in the specific fields in order to get the autofill going though (i.e. Address Book will not autofill all the fields in the card automatically for you).
