Were you running version 2.x or 1.x ? Not that it really matters if it
doesn't work, but I am curious :)

Anything simpler? ;) I tried it quickly, but I guess it will require
more time than 5 min. There must be another way...

Thanks guys

I had read that I could export to csv using:

evolution-addressbook-export --format=csv > out.csv

I found:
/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-addressbook-export  --format=csv

Sadly, when I run it, it claims to be unimplemented:
** (evolution:24348): WARNING **: FIXME: wait for completion

I assume this was for 1.x, as I can't find it in 2.0.2. Am I missing it
somewhere? Is there anything equivalent I could use?

Thanks a lot

I am using evo 2.03 & oo 1.1.3

In oo go to tools/data sources

Evo should show up in the list of sources, just go through the steps to
add it as a source

Open a new spreadsheet, hit F4, select the table your contacts are in,
pick any or all and presto

I don't think it takes 5 minutes even. I was blown away when I first
found it and now use it frequently in oo to get mail addresses etc on
the fly plus you can link just as easily to mysql etc the same way
